My name is Lyell Castonguay, and I’ll be your instructor. I started carving woodblocks while obtaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. I live in Central Maine, and my newest work examines the lives of animals through the lens of an illustrator and visual storyteller. My pet doves and finches inspire me to continue making nature-themed woodblock prints.
