'We are a collaborative artist/printmaking duo (husband and wife) specializing in the start-to-finish creation & publishing of our original woodcut prints. Basically, everything the two of us do as a team is ‘Tugboat Printshop’. We have been working together since 2006 from our studios here in Pittsburgh, PA. We make our traditionally crafted woodcut prints by carving original drawings in low relief on blocks of birch plywood. Once carved, these wooden blocks are rolled up with ink and printed through a press onto paper to create the finished artworks.'
