Greetings, I am Liv Rainey-Smith, woodcut printmaker. Xylographilia is a combination of the word "xylograph" (literally "wood-writing") and the suffix "-philia" (meaning "love"), translates to "the love of woodcut" and was coined to describe the focus of my work as an artist. My printmaking process blends traditional and modern tools with European and Japanese techniques, and every one of my fine art prints is printed by hand in small editions. I've also begun making serigraph reproductions and other small items based on my original woodcut art. Although the majority of my currently finished art is not related to carnivorous plants, I am working on new pieces based on my growing bog garden. Since I live in Portland, Oregon, I've focused on North American species which can be grown outdoors.
I generally ship orders within 48 business hours of receiving them and use USPS first class and priority mail. Prints are packaged in polybags with acid free backing, & shipped in rigid mailers.
