Comments: “Hidden in the glorious wildness like unmined gold.”
-John Muir
When I first saw the cabin I felt strangely attracted to the old tittering wooden thing. Maybe because I saw it comfortably hidden, surrounded by overgrown gamble oak, mountain mahogany and a variety of fir, spruce and pines. We kept nearly all the trees and the cabin shines in the glorious sun bathing the leaves with light.
I used a variety of techniques to achieve a sun-bathed woodland softness, a blotter for backing, grainy paper and softer ink.


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.
