The images in my woodcuts are what I see and experience and the merging of reality and imagination. I begin with drawing from observation and sketching.

The woodcut Song is one of my prints with the idea of Regular and Irregular. The image is created by printing a randomly carved block four times, rotated around the middle, the repetition creates a regular pattern. Song is inspired by the birds singing in the early morning creating a “Carpet of Sounds”.

In 1987 I began carving black and white woodcuts of figures printed in traditional oil inks. These were inspired by observing the life in Manhattan.

Later, in 1993 I learned Moku Hanga, a Japanese printing technique. Here, the final print is the result of printing several carved blocks, some containing multiple areas of color. The colors are water based paints and brushed onto the block. Damp paper is laid on the block and hand-rubbed with a baren from the back of the paper. Barens are round, flat disks made of wood, plant fibers, plastic rope or ball bearings. These are used to create different printing effects. Most of my prints are Moku Hanga.

 Moku means wood, Hanga translates as printing in Japanese.
