New Shop

I have launched a new Etsy shop selling my greeting cards and prints in sign language that I hand create through printmaking.  I created fingerspelled "thank you" cards in my first printmaking class by carving into woodblock to make the hand shapes. That one was no easy feat, but I fell in love with it, just spreading ink over rollers and making impressions of my carved work on beautiful paper. I posted photos of the printed cards on social media and got many positive reactions - one reached out to me to actually buy them. It was not my intention to sell them at first, but seeing such reactions, it got stuck inside my mind. I decided to take more printmaking classes, and after creating a few pieces, more people have told me to seriously consider selling them. Celebrating this new endeavor!
