How are woodcuts and wood engravings made?
Woodcuts are made by carving a block of wood, leaving in relief what is going to be the image. Once the block is carved, thick printing ink is applied with a roller, paper is placed on top of the inked block, and finally pressure is applied to the paper with a tool such as a wooden spoon or a Japanese baren. The ink transfers to the paper and the result is a beautiful hand-pulled print, deeply embossed into the hand-made paper. I use cherrywood almost exclusively and enjoy hunting for a variety of thick and textural hand-made papers for most of my woodcuts.
All my woodcuts are original in design and created using the finest printmaking materials available. Inks are permanent and any framing materials are acid-free and archival in quality.

The Hand-Made Difference:
-Photos of the print are taken from a representative of the edition, usually an artist's proof. Since all my woodcuts are hand printed, there may be a very slight variation across the edition.
-Hand-made paper also varies from sheet to sheet, therefore when a print is printed on hand-made paper each sheet of paper will be slightly different.
Both these factors contribute to making each of my original woodcuts unique works of art.
All my prints are shipped well protected and flat.
