alfredstark's Shop Announcement

A showcase of original handmade woodblock prints and drawings inspired by the beautiful wild spaces of Wisconsin's Door Peninsula! Each piece is carved and printed by hand using traditional Japanese carving tools and a disc baren on lovely Japanese paper.

Door County is a very special place for me. The dramatic mix of lake shore, woodlands, fields and sky all combine to provide an endless source of interesting subjects to portray through the woodblock print medium. With an emphasis on birds, trees and wildflowers, this shop is dedicated to showing what I find most interesting about this relatively small but diverse area. With much of the Door Peninsula being quickly gobbled up by commercial development I feel it is more important than ever to have an appreciation for the wild open spaces that make Door County a beautiful place to visit.

Starting June 1, 2014 ten percent of the proceeds from my shop will be donated to The Ridges Sanctuary in Baileys Harbor Wisconsin. This is a very special place to my wife and I and I would love for you to support them any way you can. To see what they are all about go to Neither me or this shop is affiliated with The Ridges Sanctuary, I am just a huge fan of this wonderful place and through my art I am seeking to support it.

Thank you for visiting the shop!
