Art Description

Printmaking: Linocuts, Woodcut, block print, relief print, printmaking on Paper.

Hello. Thank you for your interest! My studio is located in Islamorada, Florida—which is a skinny, remote island chain in the middle of the ocean, just north of Key West, Florida. The linocuts in this collection are a love letter to my small tropical community. If you haven't been here, you have to visit, we are often referred to as "America's Caribbean."

It is my hope that these pieces transport you to our simple, rustic way of life.

**These are original numbered editions. I sell them at galleries in addition to this online forum, so the number you will be receiving is likely different than the number on the art in the representative photo. Please contact me if you would like to know the exact edition number you will be receiving.

Each of my prints are hand-drawn and then hand-carved (in negative) on a linoleum block. Once the block is carved I roll it with ink and press the paper to the wet block using a traditional Japanese baren.

No two pieces are alike. The markings and imperfections that transfer to the page in the pressing process are celebrated as part of the linocut esthetic.

The centuries old linocut technique is often associated with street or outsider art, and has a rich history that gained momentum when Picasso embraced the medium in the 1950's.

Size: 18" x 24" inches

Paper: Masa White Handmade Washi Paper: Crisp, bright white paper with deckled edges. Do not confuse this paper with the light weight or waxed Masa commonly sold in the U.S. This paper is more like a heavy Hosho that has been sized for use with water-based inks. It is thick and tough but retains a soft touch to it.

What is Washi?
Washi is distinguished from modern commercial paper, even high quality art paper, by being made entirely by hand, using traditional methods, in small isolated villages in Japan.
