This original hand-made print is from an Alaskan Cypress (Cupressus nootkatensis), cut from a previously fallen tree outside of Ketchikan and near the Tongass National Forest.
Alaskan Cypress has been used throughout history by many of the indigenous societies that inhabit the NorthWestern parts of the United States. The Tlingit culture describes how the cypress was used to create the first killer whale.
I love these prints because each one tells a story of a place and time. Since each print is made by hand by printing from the actual cut of wood, not two prints are exactly alike. The detail is truly incredible. The prints get more beautiful the more you look at them.
I want each print to be meaningful so each one is made by hand using traditional woodblock methods. So, none of the prints in my shop have been printed by machine. Each one has been carefully pressed directly on the cut of wood to make each print as unique as the tree itself. No trees are cut down to make these prints.
As an artist, my purpose is to reveal the artistry that exists in nature and to present it in a way that is accessible enough to hang on a wall in your home. I also want to bring our attention to our impact on the landscapes that surround us. These tree ring prints help us see our place in a much larger historical context and hopefully each ring makes us reflect on the limited time that we have in this beautiful landscape.
