“My primary art activity is working with wood to make sculpture. Several years ago, I experiemented with woodcuts and fell in love with the process. I joined INprint, a printmaking group in Indiana, and I have participated in several of their print exchanges. Two years ago as a resident artist in Pennsylvania, I worked with a printer to create a major woodcut print. Many of the shapes I use in my sculpture appear in my prints, so I became intrigued with the idea of combining wood-turned forms
Scarpino plans to continue to make wood sculpture and to explore woodcut print making. The combination of these two media has unlimited possibility for exploration, way beyond her initial dreaming. “As I make each cut, I get closer to those new discoveries, enriching my life in the process.: – Scarpino
