Inspired by the work of Japanese printmakers, I create woodcuts by using traditional tools and processes used for moku hanga (Japanese method woodblock) but with a non-traditional twist by printing the image on a map. I first transfer my drawing to a woodblock which is then hand carved and printed with sumi ink or watercolor on a reproduction of a particular map. The map reproduction is made using archival inks and acid free printing papers and chosen from a collection of topographic or other types of maps. The prints are open editions, as each image takes on a completely different appearance and feeling with its accompanying map background. However, as each is an original, they are not printed in large numbers. My subject matter is usually drawn from nature or landscapes and sometimes the changes made to them by humankind. I accept commissions for specific or new images to be printed on maps of a particular place or appearance when available.
