Paul Roden and Valerie Lueth are the husband and wife team of TUGBOAT PRINTSHOP. Since 2006, they have been working together, using traditional printmaking to create contemporary artwork. Based in Pittsburgh, PA, Paul and Valerie have recently completed their largest work ever.
The Moon measures 36″ x 32″ and is 100% handmade. Prints are available on the official Tugboat website.
Paul and Valerie are passionate about printmaking. On their site they remark:
“We hope to keep printmaking alive in the public’s mind, reaching new audiences through direct conversation. We feel that printmaking is one of the most accessible of the fine arts, as it produces multiples. Our hope is that through our work we can foster greater public appreciation for the arts, cultivate greater interest in owning original art, & stir up newfound interest for traditionally printed works on paper.”
