Woodcut & Linocut Prints

These images are original woodcuts or linocuts cut from shina plywood or linoleum. Based on my drawing, each color is individually transferred onto a block, and is then cut away with carving tools. After cutting, the interlocking color blocks are printed in successive layers onto Japanese paper using highly pigmented, environmentally safe inks. Some of the images are printed from 5-6 separate blocks and use as many as 9 or 10 colors. I am able to make multiples, but every picture is a bit different from the next as each one is made by hand. My original drawings are based on the Vermont landscape and combinations of images from my travels.

Woodcut prints can be purchased either framed or unframed. Unframed prints are mounted on
100% cotton rag foam core and are shrink-wrapped. Framed prints are mounted on 100% cotton
rag foam core with a rag mat in a Nielsen black frame (see left).
