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 WAS ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE IN OCTOBER
AT HOMESTEAD NATIONAL MONUMENT OF AMERICA
IN BEATRICE, NEBRASKA!
WHAT A GREAT TIME THAT WAS! I CREATED NEW WOODCUTS APPROPRIATE TO THE PARK AND TALKED WITH SO MANY VISITORS!
This activity is supported by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs Minigrant Program, administered by the Central Upper Peninsula Planning and Development Regional Commission.
I made this "little logo" to give to visitors as a souvenir.
Making this poster
was a lot of fun!
These five woodcuts tell "The Story of Homesteading" - Native Life, Plowing the Prairie, Putting Up Hay, One Room School, and Industrial Farming
