Katharine is an artist and printmaker who works primarily with linoleum block printing. Her favorite part of the process is the block carving, which is done entirely by hand. She is inspired by botanical patterns and folk arts from around the world, and embraces the imperfect, bold look of block printing in her designs.

Katharine has a BA in Studio Art and International Studies from Kenyon College, and began her printmaking business in 2009 as a way to bring her block printed designs to stationery and home goods. Katharine’s studio is located in Hyde Park, Vermont. She grew up in London and Hong Kong, and was formerly based in Washington, DC.

When she’s not printmaking, Katharine likes planning trips and eating dim sum. To see behind the scenes in her studio, follow Katharine on Instagram.
