CUSTOM INQUIRIES & COMMISSIONS
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 and her company
Yee-Haw Industrial Letterpress, 2 decades ago, while scavenging to purchase and restore vintage printing presses
long forgotten throughout the Southeast.
She hand prints her letterpress monoprints and mixed media art in
Knoxville, TN and New Orleans, LA.
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
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.
