Image: In carving these little jump dancers, a little girl approached my booth and attended carefully to my cutting the wood. She finally asked: "are these boys or girls?"
"They are woodpeople," I replied.
"Aaahhh!," she had presumably heard of 'woodpeople' before, because that seemed to answer her question completely to her satisfaction. Children are such an inspiration.

Process:
Woodcuts and wood engravings are made by drawing an image on a block of wood, usually cherry in my case, then carving out the negative spaces. After carving, what is left is a big "stamp" of the desired image. I roll ink with a roller over the woodcut, place a piece of handmade paper on the inked block, apply pressure and transfer the image on the paper.

All my woodcuts are made in limited editions, signed and numbered in pencil by the artist.
