Meet The Team
I am the creative trouble maker who started Two Tables Press in 2011 with two tables and a small etching press. I love making images and books using recycled materials. I have an BFA and MFA in Fine Arts. I am also a art educator, photography assistant and meteorite spotter and cat herder. My secret skill is an odd ability to recognize celebrity voice overs.
Meet The Fleet

Acquired in July of 2019 at a thrift store in Kingman, AZ by David and Stephanie Van Ness, the "vanPress" is named after this extreme feat of thrifting luck.
The first press acquired in 2010, PFred is a rugged, clunky but lightweight small press that was used at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon and as well as 4 of the states Two Tables Press has resided in.
