*******So What is a White-line Woodcut Print Anyway?********

White-line woodcuts are created by carving away only the outlines of an image out of a wood block. The remaining shapes can then be individually "inked" with watercolor or gouache and pressed onto a piece of paper. The grain of the wood helps gives the image texture and character. Also, the white lines are embossed into the paper, giving it a sculptural element.

Since only one print can be made from a block at a time, the prints combine qualities of one of a kind paintings and standard relief prints.

In August of 2011, one of my white-line woodcut prints won First Prize at the 14th Annual National Small Works Exhibit at the Washington Printmakers Gallery in Silver Spring, MD. "Calm Day at Fort Stark" can be seen in the "Print Gallery" at
