Art by Ashley Mae


Ten Hens Press is owned and run by Ashley Mae. 

Each print begins with a sketched design transfered to a linoleum block. The linoleum block is then prepared and the relief image is carved by hand. After the design is cut into the block it is inked, positioned on paper and run through the press/ hand burnished to reveal the image. The print is then tranferred to an overhead line to air dry.

Ten Hens Press studio building is settled in rural Kentucky on a homestead surrounded by pine trees, free ranging chickens, happy dogs and cats.
