I've been working on the "Birches" print for a few weeks, and am getting close to the last layer of ink. Here are a few images of my progress. I have a deadline of April 30th to get it in the mail for the Sketchbook Project Print Exchange. Good thing I have this week off from work!
This is hand-printed on black Canson paper with Akua inks using a "soft-cut" block.
I am an art teacher who loves to draw and paint, as well as illustrate for children. I also enjoy printmaking---especially block prints. Whatever I do as an artist, I have to remind myself---no pressure---it all starts by just putting pencil to paper.
