Hello Good People!
Woodcut printmaking gets me BEYOND myself in ART because it's a collaboration with NATURE. In carving the image in wood, you never really know how it's going to turn out. You may have a really really good idea of how it will turn out, but there's nothing like the feeling of rolling the ink on the block for the first time and seeing just what you've ACTUALLY done.
I have ADVENTURES in ART, sometimes collaborating or doing record covers or band posters. I even got NOMINATED for a Grammy, along with my collaborators Brian Grunert and Anaïs Mitchell, in the ALBUM PACKAGE DESIGN category in 2011 for work on Anaïs' record, HADESTOWN.
But EVERY PIECE is really an ADVENTURE, because like I said above, you never really know what's going to happen.
ABOUT THE WOODCUT PROCESS
Each block is hand-drawn, and then hand-carved. A different block for each color, properly lined up, creates the color images as they are inked up and run through the etching press!
PRINTING (this makes it look quick and easy, but there are always problems to solve!)

The best way to see what I'm up to these days is to FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM for the latest from the studio.
I ship worldwide, via USPS, satisfaction guaranteed. Seriously. I'll even pay return shipping, though this hasn't (knock wood) happened yet. Ask me about WHOLESALE or GALLERY PRICING.
