I have been interested in type and printing since I was a girl; my father worked for Mergenthaler Linotype. Growing up I assumed everyone’s dad pointed out good and bad examples of typography. My love for the printed word was always in the background of my life. Raising a family and investing in my home and garden in Connecticut left little room for other pursuits except for watercolor. Now my three daughters are grown and I finally have the most precious gift of time. I started taking letterpress classes. Once I got my feet wet and my hands inky, I was hooked. Slowly and steadily I turned my basement into a Print Shop. So here I am, enjoying a new phase of my life. You could say it all started with watercolor. I love to paint flowers and little still lifes. That led to creating cards and invitations for friends, and that led to Saltbox Press!
