Mad Hare Press LLC, founded by Liz Ortiz, is a Latina-owned small business specializing in printmaking. Combining traditional and contemporary techniques, Liz creates unique and captivating hand-carved fine art prints. Mad Hare Press offers a dual experience, focusing on both the creation of hand printed artwork as well as instructing educational workshops focusing on accessible printmaking. Liz, a Fort Collins-based artist with a BFA in Photo Image Making and Printmaking from Colorado State University, brings a wealth of expertise to her art, particularly in intaglio, lithography, and woodcut methods. Liz Ortiz’s work features graceful and bold line work, drawing inspiration from nature’s gestural lines to create impactful figures and compositions. While her prints are primarily monochromatic, she also employs multiple plates for multi-color prints and incorporates media like watercolor and fibers for mixed-media pieces. As a first-generation university graduate and daughter of a Mexican native, Liz’s journey as a Latina artist and business owner exemplifies her dedication and passion for printmaking, making her a significant figure in her local arts community.
