Laura B. DeLind
has been cutting and hand-printing linocuts for over 30 years. She
loves linoleum as a medium because it is unpretentious, has no
pre-existing texture, and lends itself to spontaneous, bold images.
enjoys the challenge of black and white design and the interactions of
positive and negative space. She is also fascinated by organic shapes
and frequently finds inspiration in her own back yard. Birds provide her
with a read-made “excuse” to play with pattern, but insects, clouds,
feathers, teapots, pears, and parrots are also subject matter for her
elegant, yet whimsical linocuts.
prints have been exhibited nationally; they appear in permanent art
collections, and have been commissioned for organizational logos and
rubber stamps. The Unauthorized Audubon (MSU Press: 2014) pairs her linocuts with the poetry of Anita Skeen. Lavender Hill Farm (Mead Hill Press: 2015) pairs her prints with the stories of Jennifer P. Otto.
offers relief print-making workshops at Grove Gallery, MSU. Blue Lake
Fine Arts Camp, and Ghost Ranch. Her most recent work can be seen on
her website – laurabdelind-linocuts.com.
