Sense of Press is an independent publishing and printmaking studio based out of Baltimore, Maryland.  Our mission is to provide accessible and meaningful platforms for artists to produce and disseminate art, ideas, and discourse. Sense of Press self-publishes artist books, zines, posters, and other print ephemera, and offers print resources and support for artists, activists, and collaborative projects.

Sense of Press was founded in 2019 by artist and printmaker Nicole Ringel. Her interdisciplinary practice encompasses printmaking, bookmaking, installation, video, guided walking experiences, and animation. Nicole received a B.A. in Studio Art and Art History from McDaniel College and completed an M.F.A. in Intermedia and Digital Art at The University of Maryland, Baltimore County in 2019. She currently teaches Print Media, Drawing, and 2D Design at McDaniel College and UMBC.
