Michigan's wildflowers are not only beautiful, they're key to the survival of native birds, butterflies, insects, wildlife and more.  The wildflowers featured in this series of block print designs are ones I discovered growing on Mackinac Island while performing a study about monarch habitats for the Mackinac Island State Park and Kalamazoo College.  They are a great conversation starter about what makes a landscape biodiverse and nature-friendly.

In relief printmaking, an artist applies ink to a hand-carved block and then burnishes the inked relief onto a piece of paper. Multiple originals are possible by re-inking the carved surface and burnishing the relief onto a new piece of paper. The total number of identical prints is the edition number.

Printed by hand with soy-based ink on quality 280 lb. paper. The acid-free, archival paper ensures the original block print will last a lifetime for generations to enjoy. Each print is packaged in an archival clear, recyclable bag.  The matted option includes an archival, 100% alpha cellulose soft white mat with a backing board to protect the print.  Color versions are individually painted with watercolor.

Please note: Due to the one-of-a-kind nature of the medium, exact colors and design registrations may vary slightly from the image shown.

This little print looks great in black or the soft blue frame featured in the photograph.  Please reach out if you are interested in designing a custom frame to enhance your décor.
