Editioning has begun on my Chine collé photogravure of “Sacred Hoh” at Creekside Studio in Austin, Texas and I am excited to have it on display during Austin Studio Tour 2021. Many thanks to Master Printer, Tracy Mayrello, for helping me to create a beautiful varied edition. Visit Creekside at 916 Springdale Road Bldg 2 #103B @canopyaustin.
Through this image and the vibrance, I try to relate the experience of standing in the arms of this sacred place, Hoh Forest. There was such quiet. Peace. Moss and growth thicker than I have ever seen, majestic ancients, giant trees filtering the light with every shade of green ever imaginable. The green glowed as if God had an emerald lens filter in front of the sun. You feel the clean air.
The trails are natural routes from the elk that are part of this eco system. There are halls of moss, and you begin to believe in fairies.
This protected area, once reverent for the quiet, is now being invaded by noise. Not only from the record number of people visiting parks, but the noise pollution that lurks from above.

I am offering a pre-publication sale price of $500.00 for the first 4 prints sold. The pricing on the edition thereafter will be $600.00. Pre-publication pricing supports the artist by funding project costs during editioning.
