I started making large metal sculpture at Tom Nelson’s Sculptors Wrestle steel and never stopped wrestling with metal. We had a collaborative island group who were all learning metal smithing skills and it grew from there.
I first encountered woodcuts as a young art student in Sarasota Florida, at New College and the Ringling School of Art. One of the first ever exhibits of the northern Canadian Inuit stone cut prints was on display at the Ringling Museum of Art, along with the grand Reubens paintings and the full-size replica of Michelangelo’s David. Twenty-five years later I traveled to the workshop on Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic to see the stonecutting in progress.
