Process: I covered the block with dark umber ink and started drawing straight with the the kinves and chisels. The grain of the wood played a big part on where I placed my models.
Image: I wanted to achieve a sense of movement, akin to how I feel when listening to my favorite flamenco tunes. My husband calls these type of woodcuts "swirlie, swirlie."
Process: Woodcuts 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. Signed Numbered Woodcut Limited edition Figures Surrealism 12 to 36 in
