Artist and printmaker Jim Lee creates original woodcuts to illustrate his limited-edition, hand-printed books. Lee begins a series with pastel and pencil drawings from which he develops his woodcuts. These prints require many layers of printing to produce their lush surfaces and visual depth. His imagery focuses on the landscapes of New England, the Canadian Maritimes, and Nova Scotia.
