I learned about the process of screenprinting from my brothers at BC Print Media. After years of painting with acrylics, I decided to give screenprinting a shot and registered for a class at the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative. Needless to say, I fell in love with the screenprinting process and I wanted to learn everything about it.
Fast forward a few years, and I now do everything in my converted basement studio. I hand draw my own images, convert the artwork to transparencies, coat screens with emulsion (in a 3×6 space under the stairs), and burn my screens on a homemade light table. The final step is to pull all of my prints by hand.
I started Repeater Printing in 2013 and live in Evanston, IL with my two favorite people – my wife and my daughter.
