Welcome to “Offtheblockpress, my website for images and information on reduction printing.

Printmaking is my passion and I strive to create works that reflect what I see in the world, harmonies of color, interaction of shapes
and certain moods, and of course, beauty.

My prints are made using the reduction woodcut technique.
Each color or shape is cut into a single block of wood then printed.  The first color is cut away from the block and the second color is printed. This continues with each color until the print is complete.  Because of the reduction technique, there is no going back.  Additional prints cannot be pulled. My editions are small, usually only 6-10 copies of each image. Once completed, the edition is considered “closed”.

Please enjoy the work and if you have any comments you are
invited to contact me at migcreate@aol.com.
