Description

In our society it is so easy to focus on the negative. By doing so, we build walls, create stereotypes and point out superficial attributes that make us different from one another. When this happens we create and feed an atmosphere that fosters the development of fear. This fear blinds us from the beauty in our world. This fear prevents us from seeing the true potential in ourselves and those around us. Move past this fear. Let our lives be the sum of the choices we make or do not make every day. The art of letterpress is just like life. In letterpress and in life, we are given the materials to create. The type, the ink, the paper, the furniture, and the font. It is all there. From little pieces, we can create beauty that was not there before. By choosing to be intentional, we can make art that transcends its materials, media and life.
