TUGBOAT PRINTSHOP | ORIGINAL WOODCUTS & ARTIST PRESS


Tugboat Printshop (Pittsburgh, PA) is an internationally recognized artist press

specializing in finely-crafted, original woodcut print editions.


T.B.P.S. woodcut prints are made traditionally, start-to-finish by hand.

Much care, time & thought goes into the creation of each print.


Drawings are made on birch woodblocks, then carved in relief using handtools/knives/gouges.

Prints are published by the artist(s) directly from the hand-carved blocks.


Tugboat Printshop uses fine archival papers & top shelf inks; quality is important!


Valerie Lueth (Artist/Printmaker/Founder) runs operations & produces woodcuts at T.B.P.S.

A dedicated & multi-faceted artist/operator at Tugboat for 12 years & counting (co-founded in 2006),

Valerie's grassroots approach to making & sharing print projects is hands-on & upbeat.

VALERIE LUETH | BIO



Valerie Lueth was raised rural on the South Dakota prairie,

self-motivated to draw, build, tinker, and grow from her earliest years.

After attending the University of South Dakota and receiving her BFA in Printmaking in 2004,

she moved to Nashville, TN, working remotely as a full time video game concept artist & game texturer

while continuing to produce prints & drawings and exhibit as a working artist.

Valerie co-founded Tugboat Printshop in 2006 after moving to Pittsburgh

and has been actively producing
limited edition woodcut prints since that time.



In 2016, Valerie began independently operating Tugboat, evolving from collaborative works into

a new
body of intricately hand-crafted solo works in woodcut and drawing.



Valerie's love of art, craftsmanship, print history & technique, photography, writing, design,

nature, bootstrapping and sharing with others has propelled her unique path in the arts.
