With this series I have tried to combine the rich colors, simple shapes and nostalgia of traditional wood block prints with the energy and texture of spontaneous line. The work is primarily done using 4 to 5 blocks per image and 5 to 10 ink colors. I hand pull the prints using my own press. Each piece is an original and I feel the imperfections give individual character and a sense of the artist's hand. In these days of easily obtained, mass-produced perfect images, I find that espececially precious.
