SHAWNA FRANKLIN

Shawna’s meticulous block printing is done one piece at a time, by hand-burnishing rather than mechanical pressing. Her fondness for handmade prints and the process of designing them began as a little girl, cutting motifs out of wallpaper and piecing them together.
She also derives inspiration from living in a cabin in the woods and her work as a kayak guide, both of which immerse her in the nature she loves.
