The Lamb, my woodcut monoprint (2015) was recently accepted to the 36th Bradley International Print and Drawing show, at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois. The show will run from March 11 through April 27, 2017, with a Visual Voices Lecture by juror Kathryn Polk, on March 9th.

My white line woodcut, Roof Shovelers, was accepted to the Member's Juried II, on view at ConcordArt in Concord, Massachusetts now through March 26th.

I will also be presenting a demonstration of my white line technique at ConcordArt on Wednesday, April 26, 2017, from 10:30 to 12:30. I'll begin by giving a brief overview and history of the development of the medium, and then take the audience through the process of creating a print, from design, transfer of drawing to the block, cutting and printing. I'll also show examples of creative inking, and show examples of white line prints that have been combined with line blocks to create multilayered color images.

Witch Hollow, my small white line woodcut, will be included in an exhibit at the Boston Athenaeum entitled New England on Paper: Contemporary Art in the Boston Athenaeum's Prints and Photographs Collection (April 6 through September 27, 2017). The public is invited for free to the show's opening on Wednesday, April 5th from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

I love this print and would love to know more about it. It's being used to advertise the Bradley International Print and Drawing show. Can you tell me more about it? Is the verse written by you? Was every part a woodblock print (so you cut the lettering out by hand)?

Dear Sarah,
Thank you for your kind interest in my print of The Lamb. I am calling it a woodcut monoprint; it's two press runs. The first run is from a large wood block that has only a white line cut out to delineate the main flat shapes of lamb, sky and ground. I painted this block with a brush and oil based printing inks (Charbonnel) that were thinned with turps, and it was run through the press wth those three colors at once. Then, the second block gets printed over that. It contains the linear elements of poem and sheep fleece texture and the fern and flowers on the hillock; yes, all cut by hand. I did use a dremel on the ferns. I jigsawed that block apart into main shapes of sheep, hill, and sky for ease of inking. (The sky doesn't get inked, but its wood shape is a placeholder for the press roller to run evenly over the surface.) The poem is William Blake's Songs of Innocence: The Lamb. I wrote an entire blog post (see March 2015) that describes in detail my creative impetus for this print. It was originally a response to a CFE for the Boston Printmakers.
Hope this helps! Thanks again for your interest.
Best wishes.


This is a very good artwork. I wonder if you can do other techniques of monoprinting such as lithography and etching? I would love to see it, if you happen to have one. Creating a print and creative inking are some things I would love to learn. I'm sure your audience learned a lot from you in terms of the process of monoprinting. Good luck to your career as an artist!

This is really a nice work! I believe that this has a very meaningful story. I would really love to know the story. I really admire those people who are really good at something like this. I am not as creative as you are. But I have to admit that there are a lot of times when I am not really interested with stuff like this. I just felt like I don't appreciate them simply because I don't understand its meaning. But with your work, surprisingly, I find it very interesting.
