A running friend contacted me about creating a piece for her. She had just finished her last round of radiation for breast cancer and wanted a token to remember the journey, but I’m guessing more than remembering the journey, a remembrance of the grace and grit that filled her body as she not only lived through a pandemic while continuing to parent two young kids, but took on breast cancer in the midst of it. I’m so proud of her as she navigated her treatment plan to completion with her smile intact and is now in a place where she’s doing the hard work of healing.

My running friend asked me to make something at the height of wildflower season in the North Country. When I thought of grace and grit in the world around me, my mind kept coming back to wildflowers in the prairie. These flowers appear every summer after experiencing brutally cold winters with feet of snow on top of them. Every year in spring using the water from snow and the light of a sun that didn’t warm them for 6 months, they decide to grow again. Regardless of how harsh the winter was, prairie wildflowers gracefully bloom in the summer, filling fields, swaying in the breeze, and luring pollinators. These creatures endure harsh winters and harsh times, and yet bloom still.

When I thought of my friend’s journey through breast cancer, I thought of wild flowers in all of their grace and grit.

This 6+ run print is 6"x8.5" and was hand carved and then printed by myself. This print is a limited editioned print with only 38 available. It's printed with Caligo ink (eco-friendly) on acid-free paper.

I love this series of bridge prints (as well as the landscapes but I could only pick one). Great communication and shipping. So glad to add this to my home

The print is so lovely, the colors are bright and crisp. It was shipped very quickly, and lovingly and carefully packaged. I’m very proud to display this real art, crafted by a real quality artist. (And to send the beautiful flower print greeting cards that I also purchased!)
