PAPERBASE PROVIDES ACCESS TO A COMMUNITY BASED WORKSPACE WHERE ILLUSTRATORS, PRINTMAKERS, AND CREATIVE FREELANCERS HAVE OPPORTUNITIES TO WORK IN A CREATIVE SHARED STUDIO.
Hello! We're two artists who have banded together to create this collective studio workspace for other artists like ourselves here in Baltimore.
Emily Cucalon is a painter, printmaker, and co-founder of PaperBase. She creates (often tiny) works on paper using traditional and experimental printing, bookmaking, and painting techniques. Originally from Boston, MA, Emily received her Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Painting, Printmaking, and Book Arts from the Maryland Institute College of Art and has exhibited her work throughout the east coast and abroad.
Sarah Robbins is an illustrator, a designer, a printmaker, and a crafter. After graduating from MICA in 2013, she founded Bone Black Press, restoring an 8×12 Chandler and Price antique printing press to create her own line of illustrated paper products. At the same time she built a love for visual journalism illustration, observing every detail and translating it into inky drawings.
