Profile

Background

I have been creating white line woodcuts, also known as Provincetown prints, since 2002 after being inspired to learn the technique by an exhibit at The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. 

    

Recently, I have been pushing the boundaries of the traditional white line woodcuts with out-sized items and unusual perspectives. I enjoy experimenting with this hand-printing technique and relish the freedom to play with wood, color and shapes this method allows.

White Line Woodcuts have a history.

Devised by Provincetown artists in the early 1900’s, the white line woodcut method involves incising wood with a design, hand-painting each shape on the board, and transferring the color to paper using a traditional printer’s barren or other tool to create pressure. While a given design can be printed many times over each print is done one at a time and is unique.


Inspiration

When I go about my travels---daily or otherwise---I am often drawn to a scene, view of the horizon, or particular angle of an object.  These are my favorite things to portray using white line woodcuts, in part as a way of memorizing them for myself.
