I'm Kate Costa, the artist behind Press West.
I still remember creating my very first block print in seventh grade art class. I carved an elaborate, anatomically-loose interpretation of a bumblebee on a honeycomb. I went to town printing it on every color construction paper under the sun, with rainbow inks, and proceeded to plaster every variation on the walls of my bedroom. I was hooked.

Years later, I still am. Press West was sparked by a desire to create handmade art while living on both the east and west coasts -- San Francisco and Boston. I'm continually inspired by the natural beauty around me and strive to capture it in my art.
This little venture has reawakened my passion for making and creating, and I love every minute of it. It means the world to me that you've taken a few moments to check out my work. Thank you for supporting artists and small businesses!
