WEN member, Mirka Hokkanen is featured on Boxcar Press’ blog! Mirka is a prolific artist, which is really impressive in and of itself, but especially so knowing she is a mother of two married into army life where they move every three years! The featured image here is Mr. Carpsey, Mirka’s submission for “Seize the Carp,” a collaborative project with Hamilton Wood Type & Printing Museum.
Check out this video of her process engraving a piece of box wood engrain – I always find it fascinating to see other practitioners’ work space and engraving habits – plus, Mirka’s work is gorgeous! You can see more of Mirka’s beautiful work on her website: www.mirkah.com.
