Tree ring print of Locust from Utah
When you buy one of these tree ring prints, you’re getting an actual handmade woodcut print, not something printed from a machine. That’s because I consider each a work of art that is as unique as the tree I make them from. I also don’t believe in cutting down trees to make my art. I travel to meaningful places to find wood from previously fallen trees. In a way, I’m just publishing the story of a place as written by a tree over decades and sometimes hundreds of years. I sign each print because I stand by my work. If you’re not happy with the artwork I will give you a full refund, no questions asked.

****If you have a piece of wood you’d like me to make art from just send me a message, I’m happy to do personalized pieces.

Here are some interesting facts about the locust tree. The name locust is said to have been given the name Robinia by Jesuit missionaries, who fancied that this was the tree that supported St. John in the wilderness, but it is native only to North America. The locust tree of Spain (Ceratonia siliqua or Carob Tree), which is also native to Syria and the entire Mediterranean basin, is supposed to be the true locust of the New Testament. As a young man, Abraham Lincoln spent much of his time splitting rails and fence posts from black locust logs. Flavonoids in the heartwood allow the wood to last over 100 years in soil. It is one of the heaviest and hardest woods in North America.
Masons have traditionally considered locust trees as symbols of purity and endurance.
Robinia is now a North American genus, but traces of it are found in the Eocene and Mio
