Announcement   Welcome to ArtBirdsNature (formerly berkeleySU) - Prints and Art from Nature. Ken Januski is an artist living in Philadelphia, PA. All of my recent work focuses on nature, birds in particular. I will exhibit in the 53rd annual exhibition of the Society of Wildlife Artists in London, UK exhibited in October/November, 2016. I have also exhibited in the 48th, 49th and 52nd exhibitions in 2011, 2012 and 2015. In 2012 and 2011 my work reached the finalist stage in the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year competition.

This store was formerly called berkeleySU, a tip of the hat to the place where I began my printmaking education, the basement of the student union at UC Berkeley. As the store primarily sold my prints when I opened it seemed appropriate. But I have a very lengthy history in abstract art. I also have a fairly old blog called Art, Birds, Nature which seems to well summarize my interests. In 2016 I finally decided to try to unify my blog and my Etsy store by using the same name for both. The store now includes work in linocut and woodcut as well as watercolor, acrylic and various drawing media.

My older strictly abstract work is also available on Etsy at OldAndAbstract.

This was a watercolor I didn't notice when I first found the ArtBirdsNature shop so I found that I needed to pay attention when I looked at the various mediums. The hummingbird is mesmerizing in flight and at rest. The background is interesting with its colorful details.

This is a watercolor that makes me pause and reflect. It's a slice of time where a bird and a dragonfly share the same space.

He's captured the movements of the water and the gulls.

This was the first woodcut that caught my eye from the many choices by Ken Januski. He has captured the personality of this heron!

About

Prints and Paintings from Nature

I started my shop in late 2010 about the same time I took up linocut for the first time ever. It seemed like the perfect place to show and sell this type of multiple-edition work.

At that time I also had another online store and it really was my primary store. I wanted this store to focus on the prints. But over time I've added much of my non-print work to this store. It, and another Etsy store for abstract work, are now my primary online stores.

I've been an abstract artist for about 30 years and only turned to naturalism in 2006. My interest in birds, nature and the outdoors became my main artistic subject. Slowly I added media that I used abstractly to my naturalist portfolio. So now I work in watercolor, charcoal, pastel, and acrylic as well as lino. In 2013 I also started working in woodcuts and now I use them more frequently than linocuts.

In 2011, 2012 and 2015 I exhibited in the annual exhibit of the Society of Wildlife Artists in London. In 2011 and 2012 I was a finalist for the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year in the International Category. I also have exhibited numerous times in the Galley of the Commons the online gallery of Wildlife Art Journal. I will also show in the Society of Wildlife Artists Annual Exhibition in London, UK in late 2016.
