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 have exhibited in the annual exhibition of the Society of Wildlife Artists in London in 2011, 2012 ,2015, 2016 and 2018. Though there are numerous bird and wildlife art juried shows this is the only one that I make a serious attempt to get into. In 2011 and 2012 my work reached the finalist stage in the BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year competition.I am not British. My background is thoroughly American. I just find British and European wildlife art the most appealing.

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. In 2017 I also began working in moku hanga, a Japanese method of woodblock printing. That is also shown here.

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

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. Etsy like the perfect place to show and sell this type of multiple-edition work. Eventually I added other types of prints as well as other types of painting and drawing to the shop.

Since 2017 my main printmaking medium has been moku hanga, or Japanese woodblock.

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 linoleum block, woodblock and moku hanga.

In 2011, 2012, 2015 and 2016 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 Gallery of the Commons the online gallery of Wildlife Art Journal.
