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.

Traditionally, woodcuts in sets are the same theme, size and type of paper. They are matched sets, meaning the same edition number appears on both (whenever possible). Artists often work in a "series" because we have an idea that develops in several different but closely related ways. Serious art collectors often purchase entire series directly from the artist as they become more valuable when an entire set is kept together. Because they are a matched set, they look great framed together.

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.
