Santa Cruz, CA
My work over the last few years was initially born from curiosity. What began as a study and representative expression of flora and fauna slowly morphed into a dedicated body of work in which I found myself as an artist for the very first time. With block printing as my primary medium, I have locked into an exploration of the many wonders of the natural world, and don’t see an end in sight.
WHY LILI JOINED THE POSSE
Joining the print Posse has brought me into a talented and inspiring group of people who I deeply admire. Speedball has supported us and our ideas (however wild they might be) and has given us a platform and community to further ourselves as artists and collaborators. I look forward to growing with Speedball and all the artists in the Posse, expanding my knowledge about printmaking as well as forming friendships, new ideas, and confidence along the way.
LILI’S PRINT POSSE RELIEF INK, “Cactus Blossom”
“Cactus Blossom was inspired by the blooms of my very first cactus plant (Echinocereus ortegae), whose beauty was the catalyst for the printmaking journey I’m still on today. I love using this color for gradients, but it’s also bold enough to stand alone like a cactus in the desert.”
