The wood I gather for making these prints is taken only from trees that have previously fallen. I don't cut down any trees to make my tree ring prints. I like to gather my samples from places that have some significance like a National Park, National Forest, a historical site, or some other significant geographic location. Once I have a good sample, I prep it and use high quality ink and paper to make detailed prints. The ink takes on the texture of the wood and captures the natural patterns of the tree. All prints are made by hand and signed by me.
