Welcome to Big Mitten Linocuts

Fine art linoprints, and hand-printed wearable art, accessories, and textiles for the home

As a linoprint artist and sewist I draw original sketches onto linoleum, and then these illustrations are carved in relief, inked, and printed onto paper, cotton cloth, or linen...all by hand. Most printing is done in classic black ink. Some prints are printed in color or embellished with watercolor. As a sewist I design and sew home textiles and accessories, all blockprinted with my art. I also hand-print t-shirts!

Each print and textile has its own unique look, dependent on ink saturation and chatter pickup. I am a Michigan artist, inspired by the abundant beauty in the mitten state. You can read my artist's statement here.

Linoprints are multiple originals, not reproductions or screenprints. Prints and textiles may be ordered directly from the artist; some are available via Etsy.
