Excerpt from the recent Mesa Artists Studio Tour:

My woodcut prints are inspired by my experiences in nature, as I hike through it or draw it, in places like the eastern Sierra Nevada (see right) or New Mexico (see Cliff Dwellers), my former home. I am particularly interested in the rocks, trees and elements in the landscape that are changed by both natural and human forces.

In addition, I have been fascinated by the overlays of color and pattern in Japanese woodblock prints and folk textiles. In my work, I combine those influences.

I do both woodcut and woodblock prints. Woodcut is the Western style of printing with a carved wood plate and woodblock printing refers to the Japanese style, or “moku hanga”, translated is wood print.
