Rick has been an artist and printmaker for over 30 years. He grew up in Duluth, Minnesota, and studied history at St. Olaf College and the University of Chicago before veering from the scholarly path and attending the Rhode Island School of Design. He subsequently worked as a commercial and editorial illustrator, and in 2003 started The Kenspeckle Letterpress with his wife, artist Marian Lansky. At that time he began experimenting with wood engraving and linocut, and the rest is history. Rick always has “one or two feet in the 19th Century” and loves nothing more than producing printed ephemera.
