MARY

 

AZARIAN

 

is an American woodcut artist and children's book illustrator of more than 50 books. She won the 1999 Caldecott Medal for U.S. picture book illustration, recognizing Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin. It tells about the life of Wilson Bentley. She lives in Plainfield, Vermont.

 

 

 

"I began making woodcut prints in 1968 in a small room in my home and decided to call my studio Farmhouse Press since that was an accurate description of the modest setting for my business. From the beginning, I was determined to make my work depict the landscape surrounding my home on our hill farm in Vermont and the work (and play) that are required to sustain a rural life. I am tempted to call it a simple life, but that would hardly be accurate. I wanted to make my work affordable and decided that it would be a one-woman operation. So when you order a print from me, it will be printed, hand painted, packaged and shipped by me. I print and paint each print when I receive the order. In addition to producing prints and note cards, I have illustrated more than 50 books, including Snowflake Bentley, which won the 1999 Caldecott Award for the best illustrated picture book of the year. ​After many years of producing hand painted prints, I returned to the design of black and white woodcuts based on my experience of 50 years of printmaking. I am especially interested in working with simple shapes.
