Welcome to the website of woodcut printmaker Mary Azarian, Caldecott Medalist

I began making woodcut prints in 1968 in a small room in my home and decided to call my studio Farmhouse Press since that was an accurate description of the modest setting for my business.

From the beginning, I was determined to make my work depict the landscape surrounding my home on our hill farm in Vermont and the work (and play) that are required to sustain a rural life. I am tempted to call it a simple life, but that would hardly be accurate.

I wanted to make my work affordable and decided that it would be a one-woman operation. So when you order a print from me, it will be printed, hand painted, packaged and shipped by me. I print and paint each print when I receive the order. It may take me a couple of weeks to fill an order, but I am happy to honor a request for a “rush” order.

In addition to producing prints and note cards, I have illustrated more than 50 books, some of which are also available at this web site.

My work is available at Artisans Hand in Montpelier, Vermont and at
Quaigh Design in Wilmington, Vermont. You can contact the gallery at qdclmh@myfairpoint.net
