    • Emily Trueblood is an award-winning New York based woodcut and linocut artist. Her work can be seen in galleries and museums all over the United States, and in Spain, Israel, Germany, Brazil, Switzerland, and Argentina. Ms. Trueblood has studied at Beloit College, the University of Wisconsin, Academia Artium in Madrid, and at the New School. Her prints explore the geometry of natural and urban vistas, using color to create a mood or to render the feeling of the weather. She does all of her work by hand, and says she enjoys working in woodcut and linocut methods because once carved, “the blocks are almost impossible to change,” which “forces her to focus on what she most wants to express.”
