I may be Ms. Bathtub, but I hardly ever take baths.. I do shower that is, so don't worry!

I am the director of the Bathtub Art Museum and also run my own printing card & novelties business under the name Red Bat Press. I live in the great bike fun-friendly city of Portland.

I'm always up for a good adventure; however anything goes here.

My Letterpress

Here she is. I'm gonna fix her up with new rollers & de-rust her. In fact, this little letterpress has been sitting in my garage for about 3 1/2 years. Now that I'm out of my downtown studio, and working from home, and attempting to wean myself from the IPRC's presses, I am in need of a letterpress. I was thinking that the this one I had was heavy and awkward - and though this one looks like it was built like a ship and once served a lifetime at the Bede-Hibbit Mortuary Printers, I think she'll serve Red Bat Press just fine. Her handle is light with wood, easy to grab, and all in all this press looks like it's in good shape. I'll be printing in my garage by June, I'm sure of it.
