Erin : DeKalb, IL Session

In January, I had an opportunity to photograph the very talented Erin Nolan who is a woodblock print artist here in DeKalb.  She got into printmaking because she wanted to help provide some extra income for her family with her artwork, but found it hard to part with her work after spending so much time on it.  Printmaking was the perfect way for her to share her work while being able to hold on to her original creations.  Seeing her process was extremely interesting!!  

Her tools.

Those bad boys are SHARP!
Depending on the size, it can take Erin anywhere from days to months to finish a piece.
 

Check out her website, where you can find a link to her exhibits!
Happy Monday!!! :)
