My name is Gail Owen and I am a NE Portland artist inspired the flora/fauna of the temperate North West. My large format linoleum print work is a melding of high-art and high-craft techniques.
Each editioned print consists of several individually hand-pulled linoleum reduction prints stitched together onto a large single panel of Arches Archival paper. The workmanship and individual focus of these print ‘editions’ makes them each one-of-a-kind works of art. I also supplement my passion for prints by incorporating my original linoleum relief prints with wood and string to make a contemporary version of interactive toys inspired by early American craft.
