Upcoming Wood Engraving Workshops


I will be teaching a week-long wood engraving workshop in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of New York State June 16 - 22, 2024. By day, workshop participants will be guided through the entire process from transferring an image, to engraving, to printing small editions. Participants will learn about types of wood used for engraving, care and sharpening of tools, safe use of printing equipment, ink mixing, and types of paper. Printing by hand as well as on a Vandercook proof press will be covered. By night, you can continue to work in the studio, or enjoy a drink and build a fire by the lake. No previous engraving or printing experience is necessary, but patience, good eyesight, and a steady hand are very helpful. For more information, and to register visit:


If you're unable to travel to the FInger Lakes this June, perhaps you will be able to join me at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina in July, where my good friend and colleague, the masterful Joanne Price of Starpointe Studio, will be teaching a week-long workshop, and I will be acting as her humble assistant.

Where to See My Work This Spring


The Print Center will be featuring some of my prints along with many other this Saturday, April 20, 2024 at the Philadelphia Print Fair from 10am to 3pm in Solmson Court, The University of the Arts. Admission is free!


My recent wood engraving titled, The Widow (Self-portrait) has been accepted into the Wood Engravers' Networks' fifth traveling triennial exhibition. The first location of the exhibition will be the galleries at Stockton University, and it will be on view in early June, 2024.


My newly editioned reduction woodcut titled, Spirit Orbs / Ball Lightning will be on exhibition this month at Southern Graphics Council International’s Conference in Providence, Rhode Island. In addition to that, one impression from the edition will become part of Zuckerman Museum of Art’s permanent collection in Atlanta, Georgia, and one will become part of the permanent collection at Florida Golf Coast University in Ft. Meyers, Florida


I was been commissioned by Princeton University Museum of Art to write copy for wall signage that annotating their new display of an original Albrecht Dürer woodblock along with original Dürer woodblock prints. What an honor!

I'd like to thank the Wood Engravers' Network for helping to get the word out about my exhibition of woodcuts and wood engravings that is currently on view at The Print Center. They pulled from the lovely gallery notes written by The Print Center's Jensen Bryan Curator, John Caperton to give a good synopsis of what you can expect when you go to see the show. They also included lots of detail images of my work to entice you to come out and see the show. The Print Center is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10:00 - 6:00 p.m. and they'll be staying open late on March 23rd when I'll be giving a talk at 6:00 p.m. Here's a link to the blog!
