“Carving on the wood board, my first woodcut, 1970, a dead butterfly, delicate, yet still having the strength of struggling life, a broken breath. I called my first woodcut “On the Wings of Music.” Thirty years later, I have made over 300 pieces of woodcut, still feel like I am doing my first cutting on the wood board, still feel under the shadow of the monarch, flapping its crossing country migrating wings, delicate, yet full of strength, indefinite, yet determined.”
