My most recent screen print is shown above. This image is inspired by a block print my mother owned by Kawase Hasui titled Moon at Magone. I grew up seeing it in our living room. As an adult I witnessed the scene I depict above while on a canoe trip in the Canadian Quetico Provincial Park at a campsite on Basswood Lake the first night in. My experiences stick with me and I revisit memories and ideas bringing together multiple influences as I decide what it is I need to make and how I want to make it.
I'm thrilled to have my print "Fly-by on Shelley" included in the 2018 International Birds in Art exhibit at the Woodson Art Museum. This will be my second inclusion. The exhibit features work by masters of wildlife art and it is both an honor and humbling to have my work shown alongside them.
My piece was chosen as one of 60 works included in a national tour following the Birds in Art exhibit. Sites incuded:
Brookgreen Gardens Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, January 25 – March 31, 2019
