Julie Belcher



Julie Belcher is an Appalachian artist, dedicated handmade advocate, and appreciator

of that which can be made new and useful once more.

She studied architecture and graphic design before helping to launch the hand-set letterpress revival

close to 2 decades ago, scavenging to purchase and restore presses

long forgotten throughout the Southeast.

Projects include the nationally noted illustration of American novelist

Cormac McCarthy on the cover of the New York Times Review of Books

and a series of large-scale monoprints for Whole Foods Cafe table tops

that incorporate a signature art that begins with letterpress hand printed paper pieces stitched together

and then layered with bits and pieces of her Appalachian Mountain heritage.
