A Chat with ARTERY PRESS
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
East Bay’s only Printmaking Collaborative studio that is fully organic and provides the Gouger/Artist all the tools for etching, lino-cut, and woodblock printmaking and a hand-made paper artist. Our paper-maker artist creates custom-made papers for crafts and Chine-colle printmaking.
Of the products you sell, which are your favorites?
Our popular prints are lino-cut prints on vintage book pages and paper styles. In addition, our top sellers are lino prints combined with mono-prints.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Artery Press was inspired by the desire to share printmaking knowledge to all, and be surrounded by inspiring people.
What do you love most about your job?
I love how each artist (from no skill to advance skill) fulfills that hand-pulled art after all the work of gouging. The surprise and happiness of their faces when they have never created before and ecstatic to find how beautiful their sketch transpires into a print.
