My woodcuts are a traditional Oriental Media.  After designing them, the image is transferred and hand carved on solid wood blocks, preferably American Linden.  They are inked with a roller and then printed on hand made Oriental papers.  These were printed on Chire Kozo, which is a mulberry based paper.  I use the traditional baron method to transfer the ink to the paper.  I also sign my name with the red chops.  The top chop is my name in Chinese.  The bottom chop says I draw birds and animals.  If you look closely you will see a bird character.

My subject matter includes birds and fish.  The images are strong but pleasant and tranquil. I do not concentrate on Oriental designs for the woodcuts but they do have an Oriental effect.
