My linocuts are original hand-pulled prints, usually produced in small editions. They are made with oil-base inks on Rives lightweight paper, and printed by hand using a wooden spoon. My color prints are made with only one or two blocks which are cut away and printed using the reduction method, and some color may be printed using a stencil technique.

In recent years, I’ve also been creating linocut monoprints, which are derived from the same imagery and linoleum block, but are each printed with different colors, color-blendings, cut-out areas, and texturing techniques, making each one a unique print.
