I'm a printmaker and book artist. My work is inspired by nature, memory, and what remains mysterious and alluring in our everyday lives. I'm a classically trained bookbinder and printmaker: my favorite way to make prints is through carving wood or linoleum blocks and combining letterpress and hand-printing methods.
Lauren Faulkenberry is a writer and book artist based in Whittier, North Carolina. A love of storytelling drives her work, often leading her to explore the points where shared mythologies and personal histories overlap. She incorporates hand paper-making, letterpress printing, woodcuts, linoleum block prints, and monoprinting techniques into her work. Her work has been shown both nationally and internationally, and her books are held in Special Collections libraries in the U.S. and abroad. She currently divides her time between writing (mostly novels) and teaching workshops in the book arts, and produces artist books under the imprint Firebrand Press.
