Paul Roden + Valerie Lueth
All of their prints are original drawings, hand-drawn onto blocks of birch plywood, hand-craved in low relief hand tools. Quality is extremely important to them. All of their prints are printed with top-shelf oil-based inks onto fine archival papers. If cared for properly, woodcuts will last many lifetimes.
They hope to keep printmaking alive in the public’s mind, reaching new audiences through direct conversation. They feel that printmaking is one of the most accessible of the fine arts, as it produces multiples and their hope is that through their work they can foster greater public appreciation for the arts, cultivate greater interest in owning original art, & stir up newfound interest for traditionally printed works on paper.
