My work with woodblock prints explores the beauty of the wood and its transformation into a print. The empty block is a challenge and the cutting of the wood with my wonderful tools inspires me to go beyond the block. I work with different series and the current series I’m now working on is my Flower / Nature series.
My love for color explores the exquisite qualities of the flowers and inking the blocks with a zillion inks brings out the amazing concept of each work.
I hand print each block with the use of a Japanese baren on special handmade papers that I select for the print. These prints are in limited editions.
I have a Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Pennsyvlania, 1963. I also attended the Advanced Studio at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and hold a BFA in Illustration from the University of the Arts, Philadelphia.
