We are Paul Roden & Valerie Lueth, and together we
are Tugboat Printshop. We are both artists and
printmakers, a husband & wife team. We began
collaborating on artwork together in 2006.
Our studios are in Pittsburgh, PA.
Tugboat Printshop creates authentic, traditionally
hand-crafted woodcut prints in limited editions,
available exclusive & direct from the makers (us!)
Quality is very important to us.
In addition to the exacting care we take drawing,
carving, printing, and handling our original woodcut
editions, our prints are all published with top-shelf
inks onto fine, archival papers.
It's our hope that our woodcuts provide pleasure
and inspire new ways of thinking about the world.
