About the Artist

The artist transfers an original design onto a smooth block of wood or linoleum. The negative space or non-printing areas are then carved away, leaving the raised areas that will receive ink. Once inked, the block is pressed onto paper, transferring the image in reverse. Due to the intricate and handmade nature of the process, each print possesses its own distinctive characteristics, ensuring that no two prints are identical.
