JIM MEYER

My aim is to make art that reflects the mystery and beauty of creation. Hand-printed woodblock prints are well suited for that purpose—they are high-touch and low-tech; tactile and earthy. Visually, they have a long history of honest, bold, and strong expression.

I'm based just outside Minneapolis and have worked with woodblock prints for twenty seven years, first as a commercial artist—making illustrations for advertising, design, and publishing—then showing in art galleries and online.
