I fell in love with woodcuts in the 80s, when I attended a German Expressionist show at LA County Museum. My wife gave me a woodcutting set for my birthday and I dove in blindly. I began carving images inspired by classic movies. Each carving takes 40-50 hours. The process forces me to slow down. I guess woodcutting has become my personal yoga.
