Featured New Artist- Elisheba Bagrow of Lichen & Pines Letterpress
Posted on May 30 2018
From trail crew to letterpress printing, and much more in between, Elisheba Bagrow has a surplus of experience at her fingertips. Spending most of her childhood in Tennessee, roaming the rivers & creeks there, and then traveling overseas through high school, her adventurous & curious spirit was strengthened. After graduating college she headed out West and dove straight into the wild, specifically the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Spending six seasons there on a trail crew and as a river ranger, her love and observation of the natural world was cemented. Also her love for letters, paper, making glue out of flour and water...
Deciding she wanted to pursue a creative career, she traveled to Seattle and took design & printing classes at Seattle's School of Visual Concepts. There she confirmed that she loved letterpress printing and all that it entailed. It took some time for things to fall into place but in the spring of 2016, she purchased a 1913 Chandler & Price platen press. By that fall it had found a home, and she is now proud to present a range of greeting cards and offers custom design for business cards & wedding suites.
