etsy shop: Leannegraeff
listing: The Barn Out Back - Original Linoleum Print
artist: Leanne Graeff

From Leanne's Etsy Bio:

I have always loved – pattern and color. I really found my medium in graduate school at RISD- where I began to create images through hand screen-printing.
I enjoy the process of developing a pattern. My inspiration comes from found objects - usually worn by time - and nature. I do sketch – but usually find that painting the story down is more fun.

And now that I have had a couple of months to try to work out my creative muscles - I have re-discovered linoleum block printing. The House Series, that I stared in December has been very satisfying. I have been enjoying the process of hand printing - and capturing the personalities of the homes around me. I am happy to say that I have also started to take commissions for custom "house portraits".

It's evident in Leanne's house portraits that she enjoys her work. The lino prints have warm, welcoming personalities presented in a crisp, beautifully graphical technique.
