Woodblock Engravings

After a decade of planning and working (on and off) on this project, the novella Dragon’s Song was launched on October 25, 2015. This is a fine art letterpress chapbook, published by Running the Goat Books and Broadsides. The novella, written by Newfoundland author Bernice Morgan (yes–she’s my mother!) describes a woman living in Coley’s Point, Newfoundland. While she mourns the loss of her husband, she thinks back to their time as naive missionaries in revolutionary China and the tragic event that happened there.

I created the illustrations as Newfoundland images with an Asian sensibility. These woodblock engravings are my bread and butter. The single block prints sell framed for $45 (with tax) and make excellent gifts! This November, the novella and illustrations will be available at the Craft Council’s Christmas Craft Fair and Historic Port Union, during my residency.
