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
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.
