He creates patterns that are not only beautiful but are also year-by-year timelines of lives of these damaged or fallen logs. The wood used he has rescued himself from the neighboring lands around his studio before extracting and preparing blocks of various tree species including maple, ash, oak, willow and spruce before creating his unique prints.
