How I
              Work
1
Sketch a design on paper or, in the case of wood, directly on the block.  (Ideas for sketches can come from anything that interests me.)
2
Carve out every part of the design that is to remain white (or paper-colored.)  Leave behind every part that is to be black (or ink-colored.)
3
Roll the block with ink.



4
Press paper onto the inked block.
(I use the back of a wooden spoon.)
5
Label the edition.
Each print is numbered and signed.
6
