About Carbon Copy Co. Press | Kerri Sandve

Hello, Moonbeams!

I am SO glad that you are here–thanks a million for joining me on this journey. My name is Kerri (previously Mulcare) Sandve. I'm an interdisciplinary artist and writer. I create and publish artist's books, zines, and prints under the imprint Carbon Copy Co. out of my studio (Casket Arts BLDG) in Minneapolis, MN.

In my work, I often combine papermaking, printmaking (like screenprinting, letterpress printing, mono-printing, and on occasion lithography), book arts, and collage. Recurring themes in the work revolve around nature, memory, archive, place, body, and time. I love working with natural materials and found objects/images in my process,’ creating textures, colors, and patterns that mimic or allude to nature or the body.

In 2020, I started renting a studio space. I'm so grateful to have a dedicated place to create and connect with the local arts community. I have been thinking a lot about how I can sustain my studio practice and keep making work in these strange and difficult times, while also planning for the future of Carbon Copy Co. 

To keep my studio space going and to work on longer-term projects and goals for Carbon Copy Co. I am in need of more financial stability. Additionally, I have long been looking for a social platform that allows for a more direct connection with others interested in my work–one that lives outside the realm of algorithms, ads, and scroll culture. This is where you–my lovely reader–& this Patreon page–come in!

WHAT IS PATREON? Patreon is a platform specifically for creators to run a subscription content service, that offers them ways to build relationships and provide exclusive experiences to their subscribers, or "patrons."  These patronage structures have been around for a long time and have helped artists throughout history create their work. Patreon is REALLY GREAT because it offers an opportunity for you to directly support and interact with the creators you love–and show us that you believe artwork/creative work is WORK and that we deserve to be paid for it.

If you subscribe and become a patron, your contribution allows me to worry less about making ends meet (I might even be able to leave one of my PT jobs!), it provides me the time and space to create on my own terms, to get paid (consistently) for my work and the content I provide, and creates a community where I can have a direct relationship with you! How neat, right?!

My specific goals for the next few years, which this Patreon will help make possible, are to:
  • To leave one of my PT jobs and dedicate more time to my work/the studio
  • To build sustained financial support for the work I do as an artist
  • To build out my studio and purchase equipment that will aid in the making of my work (outside of other spaces that require monthly fees or memberships for using equipment). These items will also allow me to eventually offer workshops for people interested in print and book arts in my community (spread the printmaking love!) while providing additional income to sustain my practice
  • To continue developing new work and to further my writing practice, long-term print projects/series, and exhibit work regularly.
  • To create 2-3 (or more!)  publications/year under Carbon Copy Co. (ie. artist books or zines)

Other ways to connect with, support, and engage with my work include: visiting my website, following me on Instagram @carboncopyco, sharing this page and my work with others in your community, and visiting the shop.

I invite you to look around and support me. I truly appreciate your being here & look forward to connecting however that may be.
