John Stormer

Brunswick, Maine
Jay Stormer learned printmaking nearly 60 years ago at Dartmouth College. During a career as a professor and earth scientist, he continued making prints as time permitted. Now he is located in Brunswick, ME, with a workshop and press under the name Redstart Press. Woodcuts and relief engraving have been Jays primary focus, but he also works with etching and drypoint. Nature, particularly birding, is a special interest that inspires many of the prints. Recent exhibitions include a solo show, Birds of Maine, at the Maine Audubon Visitors Center in Falmouth, ME (Feb.-Mar. 2010). Several of his prints have been accepted in the International Mini Print Cantabria II (2019) & III (2020) exhibitions in Santander, Spain.
