This is my blog for JessePrints, my collection of block prints I've carved and pithy quotes I've collected for the last 20+ years. Internationally, I show and sell my work at, and locally, I make it in beautiful downtown Bellingham, WA where I live and work as a car-free, dog-walking, hat-wearing, yoga-learning artist elder.
