About the Artists
For me, activism has always started with the understanding of all our interconnectedness. Each of these block prints is a memory of a moment where I was fortunate enough to have witnessed nature uninterrupted and uncurated by humankind. I hope that the act of “recording” these memories, carving each block, and printing them by hand, gives others a bit of the joy and inspiration I feel when the world is humming and we see our way to connection.
My artwork is influenced by the wild and varied landscapes of Northern California where I grew up. Having spent much of my childhood in Nevada City, it has been woven into my work in many ways. My work embodies the natural world in both form and function using sustainable practices and natural fibers, dyes, and recycled papers. Through my work I aim to raise awareness for endangered species, encourage stewardship of the land, and a love for the world around us.
The scenic vistas and displays of natural beauty that we admire in the Sierra are not merely the result of physical and ecological processes. Governmental policies and regulations help shape what we see and experience. Martis Lake, in Nevada and Placer counties, has long been important for the recreational opportunities it provides. Whether it continues to hold a notable trout fishery will depend largely upon ensuring that development upstream doesn’t harm water quality in the impoundment
My early childhood was spent in Croatia in the magical orchard of paternal grandparents. Summers on the Adriatic revealed the majesty of the sea and life of authenticity, simplicity and beauty. So strong were these childhood impressions that they continue to inform my life and my work. In my oil/cold wax mixed media paintings I am inspired to convey the mystery, magic and wonder of the natural world.
