Block: Cherry
Ink: Black
Paper: Mexican Bark Marbled/Chestnut
Process: Standard woodcut
Image: Again I meld the human and wood, this time literally by creating a human tree, or perhaps a tree-woman. Our natures are so alike. I am told this could represent the mother of a Norse God named Iggdrasil who held the earth and sky together by turning into a tree. He gained strength from his mother Spring or Mimir, shown here.

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.
