Richard James Nelson is a St. Paul based professional woodblock printmaker. He began in kindergarten with potato prints, earned a BA from the College of Visual Arts, and has never looked back. When he isn’t in his studio he is on Minnesota’s North Shore where he wanders through the forests, sketching all types of flora and fauna. Instead of using black ink, which is the traditional relief color, he chooses to use dark brown to echo the earth itself.
