Ori-Anne Pagel - woodcut print

Printmaker, and quilter…I like lots of texture in fabric and other media. I often think in different media…I will make a quilt (or see fabric) and want to see how I could create the same feeling in a wood cut or visa versa. I like to work large and use thick paint too.
