I enjoy hand printing my work. The process is intimate and ensures that each work I create is unique and rich in color and detail. I use a metal spoon and bamboo batam to burnish the ink from the linoleum onto the paper. This process is time-consuming and often labor intensive, but rewarding. I printed Eve on creamy white watercolor paper using a subtle blend of rich brown, red and dark purple inks.

Amy Raubenolt is a printmaker who creates linoleum prints of natural subjects, primarily wild birds. This technique involves hand carving a drawing into wood mounted linoleum blocks. The color is mixed and rolled out, then printed by hand via careful burnishing with a metal spoon and a bamboo batam. The finished result is unique and original, with no two prints in alike. Amy's work explores the intersection between freedom and domesticity, by portraying wild birds in moments of tranquility and in flight. She sees these birds as symbols for our own borderland experiences between wild and tame. Amy's work was recently featured at the Urbana Evening of the Arts and the Gahanna Gallery Hop. She is a graduate of the Art Institute of Chicago and currently resides in Westerville, Ohio with her husband and three daughters.
