I make woodblock prints (Woodcuts) inspired by landscapes, creatures and human enterprises in our world, especially centered in life in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It is my way of saying that these things are valuable - they truly matter! As you see them, I hope that you think so too.
I invite you to search all of my galleries
and see all of my woodcuts!
These are my latest work...
An exciting opportunity has come my way! I will be Artist in Residence on Mackinac Island for three weeks from August 9 to 29. Living in a studio apartment above their Visitor's Center, I will be free to go where I please and work on art which is inspired by what I experience there. Working in public places where people can "look over my shoulder," I expect to complete a series of three woodcuts during that time, keeping me quite busy. I will also give a presentation and workshop on Wednesday evening, August 18, at 7 p.m. in the Station 256 Conference Room on the 2nd floor of the Visitor's Center. I will try to post some of what happens on my Facebook page. Look me up if you come to the Island during that time!
