Image: This tree feels like it has always struggled with itself but somehow managed to hang on to both "sides". Sometimes I feel like that too, just wondered what would happen if one "self" departed from the other…if it could? (Oh yeah, I tend to "anthropomorphize" trees and many features of nature so there are a couple of "personalities" in the tree for the sharp eye to find).
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.
