WOODCUTS

In Southern California I was fascinated by the twigs and sticks I saw in daily walks through Newport's Back Bay. When I came to Northern California, the twigs reassembled into trees. These linear shapes echoed the kind of strokes I had always made in my art and began to morph into a kind of calligraphic statement … a shorthand for the landscape I was familiar with and which I try to understand.
