Everybody needs a helping hand. Halle Castille is an artist and
assistant to printmaker John Amoss, who I interviewed
here. At 26 Halle has been working diligently at her career as
an artist shortly after leaving school. One of her teachers
happened to be woodblock printmaker John Amoss of Tanuki Prints.
Since August of 2020, Halle has been assisting John with his
Appalachian Trail series as well as his social media accounts. In
my interview with Halle we talk her own career, her experience with
mokuhanga in an academic setting, her day to day tasks helping John
undertake such an ambitious journey, as well as advice on how to
navigate the social media landscape as an artist. I had a lot of
fun with this interview and learned a lot.

University of North Georgia runs printmaking courses at the Dunlap-Mathis building.
The Appalachian Trail print series is created by John Amoss and can be ordered here.
The term “suicide prints” is in reference to the reduction method of printmaking as once you’ve cut away the wood there’s no going back. Printmaker Nick Wroblewski describes the process much better than I can.
