Local Feature Artist: Ochre Lea

 

Ochre Lea

Cate Kuzik is a local, community-taught artist currently creating her letterpress creations in Edmonton as Ochre Lea (oh-kerr-lee). Fueled by a passionate connection to traditional handmade techniques during this increasingly digital age her goods are made with an emphasis on fun, bright colours, and graphics with mildly inappropriate phrases to make folks smile. Printed in small batches, hand-fed one colour at a time featuring a combination of her own hand drawn, carved images with antique lead and wood type, which is hand set one letter at a time.

To say this is a labor of love is an understatement—but what else would a girl who loves unicorns and rainbows be expected to do when she grows up.
