Artist: Lili Arnold

Lili Arnold is a Santa Cruz-based printmaker and illustrator specializing in botanical block prints. Arnold grew up in a family of artists, her father being a narrative oil painter and her mother being a creative-of-all-trades. After studying printmaking in her last two years at UCSC she fell in love with the process of creating multiples and tapping into the tactile satisfaction of working with her hands. Arnold spent the following years working as a graphic designer but soon rekindled her love for printmaking as a weekend hobby. As her creative priorities continued to shift she transitioned into making prints full-time and has since been on a journey of inspiration and appreciation of the natural world.
