Tag Archives: a blog about printmaking


I’ve started to update my Etsy store with new prints including this one:



Image Size 11″ x 11 3/4″

Paper Size 17″ x 18″

Edition of 12

Stop by, check it out and let me know what you think.  I’ll be adding more images soon, but as always, if you are interested in any of my work don’t hesitate to contact me through a comment.  Since I make multiples I may still have the print you’re looking for in stock.

Have a great day!



Fused Glass Relief Print


Can You Hear Me

Fused Glass Relief Print

5″ x 5″ x 3/4″

I know it’s been awhile since my last post, but I’ve been working on a technique that combines relief printing and glass fusing.  This is the result.  It’s printed using glass powder on multiple pieces of clear sheet glass, which are then fused together to make an image /object the viewer can look into.  More to come, but I’m very excited.

Have a great day!


Nova Artworks


A big thanks to the Oxford Regional Education Centre Visual Arts in Nova Scotia, Canada for highlighting my woodcuts on their website.  You can check out all of the great things that they do by clicking the link below:


I’ve been printing a lot recently, but not taking many pictures.  Gotta get on that.

Have a great day,


Printmaking Residency

Great News!  I’ve been accepted into the winter printmaking residency at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina.  I’m really excited to spend two weeks in January working on a larger scale woodblock print, have access to state of the art facilities and meet other printmakers.  I’ll make sure to post pictures of my trip and my work as they both unfold.
Here is one of my newer prints
Have a great day!

A Look Into My Studio+Reduction Print+Step 7

Back in the tub.  Today I’m printing the key block, or black color which usually means the print is finished.  I have a final idea that I may incorporate, but want to see how this works out first.

Since this may be the last color I do, I have carved away almost everything except for outlines and the tower-like structure in the top right.

It’s important to note that I do not print in the near dark.  the lighting is so bad in my studio for taking pictures that I shut them off and rely on daylight.  Lately, it seems, the days I can get some printing done are the leftover days of the Portland gray winter sky.  I can’t wait for spring to come.

I’m happy with it, but still tempted to try to push it further.  We’ll see how it looks in a few days.

Have a great day.
