Red Hydrant Press is the printmaking studio and print shop of Alynn Guerra. Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan, we specialize in linocut and woodblock prints for fine art, illustration or commissions.

Red Hydrant Press is the name of my studio in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I started doing business under that name 10 years ago when I moved to the Tanglefoot building, I just wanted a name with no race, age or gender connotations.

I went to school planning on being a graphic designer, but life took some turns and I ended up being a printmaker instead, that was almost 20 years ago.

I moved to the US in 2000, since then my working studio has moved from a wet spot in the basement to the 3rd floor of the Tanglefoot building. I have used spoons, rolling pins, door knobs, light bulbs, old wringer machines, handmade presses, and finally a real Sturges press to make my prints.
