“Since attending graduate school, my major concentration has been on the production of largescale, hand-printed woodcuts. The relief process of woodcuts truly excites me. I think this is because the process seems to be one that combines the disciplines of drawing, sculpture, and printmaking. I create the matrix for my prints by composing a composition made of various sketches that I combine by drawing directly on a block of wood.” – Jerry B. Walters
