I’ve been making artistamps since around 1978.
My first stamps were handmade, one by one, and sent with my zines of that era. I hand-carved a border that looked like a perforated stamp edge, and stamped it repeatedly to create the ‘frame’ of each stamp. Then, I put art in the middle.
At present, I don’t have copies of any of them. (I may find some as I go through old boxes of art supplies, etc., but that’s unlikely.)
But hey, if those mailings brought people joy, they served their purpose.
This webpage features many of my early digitally-created artistamps. Many of them are clickable, opening printable images… of varying quality. (When I saved my first digital files, I didn’t always understand things like resolution. So, some of them look and/or print better than others.)
This block of stamps features some of my sunrise paintings.

Kilmallock is south of Limerick, Ireland, and it’s one of my favorite towns in Ireland. Many of my ancestors came from this area.
