These works reflect an interest in interpreting small gestures, thoughts, and sentiments into a visual form, a visual musing of sorts.

The body of this work are woodcuts carved from shina wood and handprinted. Color woodcuts are printed on shin torinoko paper using Akua water-based inks, and are in editions of 25. Black and white woodcuts and linocuts are printed using Daniel Smith relief ink and printed on hosho paper. Some black and white woodcuts and linocuts are handcolored from the backside with watercolor, using the urazaishiki method popularized by Shiko Munakata, whose work has inspired and influenced me. Because of the unique variances in handcoloring each print, there are subtle differences within the edition.

Inquiries about any of these prints can be sent to Amy Uyeki at
