Image: As a former Exercise Physiologist, I admire the human figure and especially when in fluid poetic motion. Yoga poses bring out the best in the body, both physically and aesthetically. There is a huge variety of beautiful movement involved in the practice of yoga or simply stretching the body to fully utilize every beautiful muscle.
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. Signed Numbered Woodcut Limited edtion Figures Surrealism 6 to 12 in
