Laura Wilder Artwork LLC

Twenty-eight years ago, disillusioned with her career as a graphic designer and commercial illustrator, Laura found inspiration in the designs and philosophy of the Arts and Crafts movement. She learned to do woodblock printing, became a certified Roycroft Renaissance Artisan, and was soon elevated to Master Artisan for her high quality designs and hand-craftsmanship.

The block prints are created by doing a separate hand-carving and printing for each color in the print. The printing is done on an antique hand-cranked letterpress. This method is a laborious adventure; read about it on the BLOG page at laurawilder.com.

Thematically her art explores what her distant cousin Laura Ingalls Wilder called “the sweet, simple things of life,” especially the beautiful effects of light in nature.
