UICA's 23rd Annual Holiday Artists' Market is right around the corner and we asked a few of the artists some questions about their products for the market. Below Lisa Price answered our questions. 




Tell us a little about yourself.

I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and spent my summers gardening, canning, and visiting the farmers market with my grandmother in northern Indiana. That is where I began my fascination with nature and the colors and designs of the fifties. I received a BFA in printmaking in 2001, and now I create modern block print housewares with vintage flair. My company artgoodies, founded in 2006, offers tea towels, aprons, pillows, and block print art each printed with one of my original linocut block prints.



What kind of products will you be selling at Holiday Artists’ Market?

The items I am selling at the Holiday Artists' Market are organic tea towels, prints on paper, stockings made of recycled felt, and pillows of various shapes and sizes.



What is your process for creating these products?

Each design starts as a basic drawing and then a linoleum block is carved. I mix my own custom colors and the designs are then hand printed. Pillows and aprons are sewn together with coordinating vintage fabrics. I reside in Grand Rapids, MI where I work out of my home studio.



Lisa’s products will be available for sale at UICA's Holiday Artists' Market on December 2, from 5–9 PM, and December 3, from 10 AM–9 PM.
