I look for city and nature views that appeal to me. I change and simplify the composition until I feel that I can express it as a woodcut or linocut. In city views, I like the contrast of round water towers next to straight buildings. I am interested in creating a mood or the feeling of certain weather with the colors I use. I add a third or fourth block if I feel it is necessary, but many times I use two blocks. When I begin I often do not know what the final print will look like; I find it challenging to solve problems as I go along. In the proofing stage I draw and paint on a proof until I find the colors I want to use. I often return to the same themes in new prints.

Woodcuts and linocuts enable me to work in a simplified, bold way. Once cut, the blocks are almost impossible to change. I like working like this way because it forces me to focus on what I most want to express.
