I'm Clare, and I own and operate Tiger Food Press, a one-woman print shop and illustration studio located in Portland, Oregon.


Inside my funky little print shack housed beneath the lilac tree within the blackberry bramble, I produce linocut art prints, block printed textiles, letterpress printed paper goods, hand bound notebooks, and small gift items featuring my drawing and care for detail.


My work is influenced by nature, from the wilderness of the west and camping trips in the Cascades, to the tamer realm of my vegetable garden. I’m inspired daily to translate my love of the outdoors and of getting my hands dirty into works of art you can display and use in your home and in your own crafts.
