I am pleased to announce the Siver Black online store is open!  Above are my first two print offerings: “Homage to JCV” and “Homage to JCV 2”.  The black ink print is a limited edition of 47, the color print an edition of 12.  These are hand-pulled by me in my studio, not made by machines.

The shop only has US shipping listed.  Message me for international shipping prices.

Closeup of Woodcut In Progress

I am currently working on a design for a bookplate.  The cutting is nearly complete; all that remains is the name at the bottom.  The text must be carved in reverse because it prints as a mirror image.  After carving is complete I can ink it up and print it.
