A Walk in the Park

A Walk in the Park, woodcut

John earned a BA from Western Michigan University.  After graduating, he began carving wooden signs which decorate many homes and businesses in Northern Michigan.  John also carved wooden sculptures which ended up in five foreign countries.  He then developed a line of ceramic jewelry which was sold in boutiques and galleries throughout the United States.  At the same time he reinvented the art of lithophane which creates a picture by light shining through porcelain.  The next stage of John's evolution in art was the woodblock print, also known as woodcuts, which he has been making for more than three decades.  John lives in Fairfield, Iowa with his wife, Ann.
