Marc Girouard, Printmaker/Designer
I live in Portland, OR USA with a lady and two cats.
I make relief prints (woodcuts, linocuts), monoprints, and screen prints. Sometimes I make screen prints of relief prints and monoprints. I put a lot of focus into combining printing techniques and constantly modifying my process.
Some other things… Cutting wood takes a long time, but it’s very pleasant. Transferring ink from a piece of wood to finely toothed paper is so rewarding. The flexibility of screen printing allows me to print woodcuts alongside any imaginable texture or color with efficiency. The possibilities for experimentation are endless.
The majority of my printing is done at a wonderful co-operative printmaking studio named Flight 64. I encourage you to check out the other studio members’ artwork at flight64.org or on Flickr. My recent work is available for purchase by clicking on shop in the menu above.
