Tree of Life Prints

 

Woodblock prints are classic, simple, and iconic. They have a way of portraying what’s essential, and not obvious to the eye. They speak clearly and quietly about what is important.

Claire uses this medium to explore topics in depth, like birds, farming, local abundance, natural history, vitality, the wheel of life.

Her compelling images spring from direct encounters with life coupled with research and inspiration. She hand-carves each image into wooden planks, and then prints the blocks with oil-based black ink on handmade European and Japanese papers. Once the ink is dry, she paints each print individually with watercolor: each print, although part of a limited edition, is actually one of a kind.

Claire works in series in order to explore topics in depth. Her prints are often bought and hung together in twos and threes. Her series are designed as a piece and are meant to be read as moments in a story that is open and alive and not finished.

Prints are sold unframed and are sent in a sturdy cardboard tube.
