I print all my woodcuts myself in very small editions. Often I have more prints that are proofs of different color combinations than I do in an edition. I use proofs to create large scale quilted pieces. This piece is 24"x20" and uses three different blocks to complete the image. It is titled "A garden of secret messages" which is inspired by some writings of Annette Messager. . . . DM me with questions or for prices.

"I often attempt to construct a self, carefully chipping away the surroundings to reveal a person...employing a reduction method to slowly work away the grain of the wood and reveal the portraits within...The viewer won't know the stories of the people featured, only the fragments that make it through the filters and processes leading to the final result. Just like the many souls you pass each day and hour and minute, you decide how to piece those bits together to make sense.
