When carving blocks of wood for printing, one must work in tandem with the structure and spirit of the wood.  Carving with or against the grain makes particular types of marks. Understanding this process connects me to other crafts, people across time, and geography.


Printed Japanese paper becomes translucent skin when waxed with melted beeswax. I began waxing prints to strengthen them for stitching into dimensional forms. My work is process driven and I often begin without intention but see what emerges as prints are made, waxed, cut up, and assembled with each other.


Suddenly, a face appears.
