Image: I often get asked how I get my inspiration and I tell people that it's the wood; I pick up a piece of wood and "it talks to me". Of course I get many weird looks, but the point is...the images are already there! These boxwood rounds speak loudly and I enjoy making little fantasy worlds inside of them. This particular set came to me during an early drive from a festival...heading home once more.

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.
