houck-print

I studied printmaking in the 70's at the Rhode Island School of Design, and printmaking has remained an important part of my work during the past forty years. Recently I have been working in white line woodcut, a technique that was invented in Provincetown, MA about 100 years ago.  I carve delicate lines into a pine board and then print using watercolors to create images that feel like paintings.  I used this technique to illustrate my first children's book: The Garden Grows all in a Row.
