I created Quail Lane Press as a vehicle for reproducing my illustrations. It was really important to me to make original art that was affordable. My husband and I love to collect art but found so much out of our reach financially.
After some years I managed to procure my beloved Vandercook proof press (a cylinder letterpress) and I was truly able to make that dream a reality. Today I have a proper art studio and print shop in Milwaukie. I create artwork that is inspired by earth’s landscapes and the flora and fauna within it.
Part of Open Houses, Week 3: July 20-24.
SUSTAINING GREATNESS: This week we are occupying space on the Design Week platform to celebrate our recurring theme of “Sustaining Greatness”. Each highlight aligns with our dedication to amplifying Black and Indigenous People of Color and their voices. Everyone in this curation exudes excellence in their own way and we encourage you to take time to immerse yourself in appreciating their talents and entrepreneurship in addition to all the folx that exist within the Mercatus ecosystem.
