Utilizing the democratic and practical aspects of DIY printmaking on wearable textile items, I fuse the tradition of popular/social expression inherent in them with a fine arts sensibility, thereby keeping this art form accessible to the general public. Areas of personal interest and artistic influence include early and mid-20th Century advertising design, Pop Art, post-industrial urban architecture, and old machinery/found objects. Documenting antique printing presses has become a particular source of inspiration for me.
Under the name, LS-DrewGraphics, I design and handprint a line of garment images, which have been seen at the Delaware Center for Contemporary Arts as well as local venues, including All By Hand (Liberty Place), Tyler Art Market, The Print Center, and Mt. Airy Art Garage. My garments are also in several private t-shirt collections.
