Queens: Lady Life and Lady Death

Regular price $100.00

Woodcut Relief, Signed and Numbered Edition printed on Archival Stonehenge cotton paper with oil-based ink.

Queens was my first reduction print, meaning the woodblock was carved and printed in different stages to create a layer of colors over time.
At the time, I lost an amazing person to suicide and life continued crush my spirits with negativity.  Instead of spiraling further, this woodcut process allowed me to take life in little steps. Printmaking made me focus on the present, understanding that life and death holds a lot of unexpected twists and turns just like in making art.
