White-line Woodcut

Amy has been creating white-line woodcuts, also known as Provincetown prints, since 2002. She describes being inspired to learn the technique after seeing an exhibit at The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. She enjoys the experiment and freedom to play with wood, color and shapes the method allows.

Devised by Provincetown artists in the early 1900’s, the white-line woodcut method involves incising wood with a design, hand-painting each shape on the board, and transferring the color to paper using a traditional printer’s baren or other tool to develop pressure. While a given design can be printed many times over each print is done one at a time and is unique.

Amy writes that: “When I go about my travels—-daily or otherwise—-I am often drawn to a scene, view of the horizon, or particular angle of an object. These are my favorite things to portray using white-line woodcuts, in part as a way of memorizing them for myself.”
