Paz Méndez is an Eco-Friendly Printmaker specializing in Hand Carved Block Prints.

An artist since childhood, Paz got into printmaking in 2017 working as a commercial printer at various print shops in Oregon. He learned how to Screen Print and operate high speed Lithographic Printing Presses (offset). He developed his passion for printmaking by staying late after work, and going in on the weekends, to print his own artwork.

His search for making his art look more handmade and less digitally polished led him to Linocut. Paz taught himself to carve Linoluem Blocks and he used his printmaking experience to start printing limited edition runs. Now Linocut is his favorite medium and he makes a living as a full time working artist.

Paz still has a love for Screen Printing and uses this method to make serigraphs of his linocut designs in other sizes/colors. He enjoys selling his art at local markets in Eugene, OR and fine art shows in the PNW. 

Eco-Friendly Archival Serigraphs
What is a serigraph? A serigraph is a fine art screen print. Paz has developed his own method of adapting his hand-carved designs to the screen printing process. All serigraphs are printed one at a time by the artist! 

Waterbased inks are non-toxic and archival.  
100% recycled archival paper made in a hydropowered paper mill.
"Plastic" protective sleeves on serigraphs are made from plant oil and are commercially compostable!

Recycled Cotton Tote Bags
Paz screen prints his own artwork on both sides of the bag, so you'll never have a blank side facing out!  

Waterbased ink is non-toxic and permanent
Made from Recycled Cotton
Fair Trade/Fair Labor 

Machine wash cold. Hang Dry. 

Limited Edition Archival Linocut Prints
Paz only does one print run for each hand-carved block. It is a Limited Edition and the block is canceled afterwards making it impossible to reprint. Limited Edition Prints are available in person at local markets in Eugene, OR and art shows in the PNW.
