About the Design:
"Chapel Hill, NC” is a beautiful college town. In fact, it's MY college town. Many years ago, I remember walking among the blooming cherry trees in between classes, or on my way to Franklin Street (downtown.) Recently, I took my daughter (age 7) along with my old college roommate and her kids, to go see a women's basketball game. The Cherry trees were just starting to bloom, and I just knew I had to add Chapel Hill to my "Southern Cities" series. This scene depicts the iconic Belltower and Old Well, as well as the Carolina Inn, Top of the Hill (a longtime downtown restaurant), And the watertower. Of course I took some artistic freedom with the placement of the buildings :).
I'm happy to offer these mini prints as original art at an affordable price, making them ideal for gifts. I think this print would make an unusual and thoughtful gift for any UNC alum, graduation gift, or wedding gift for those couples who started their love story at Carolina.
This particular print is made from a hand carved “soft kut” printmaking block.
The printed area of this artwork measures approximately 7 Inches wide by 5 inches tall.
Includes a custom cut, acid free matboard and backing board which measures 8x10 on the exterior and will fit into widely available standard frames.
The thick, archival printmaking paper used is sustainably forested, and made using 100% wind energy during the manufacturing process.
The inks used are all made right here in beautiful NC :)
Each Limited Edition print is signed and numbered in pencil by me.
All New South limited edition blocks are limited to less than 100 imprints, including all editions and artist proofs, ensuring that every piece is special.

About Block Printing:
Block prints often have slight textures and variations in the finished products. I think that's why I love them-- each one is special. Please be aware that, while I aim for consistency within each edition, there may be slight variations with each print and colors may differ from your computer screen.
Shipping and Production:
Please allow up to a week of time for your artwork to be printed and to dry thoroughly. If you need a faster turnaround time, message me and I'll do my best to accommodate you.
These are lovely prints and were delivered in a timely manner. I can’t wait to give them to my daughter who no longer lives in the area.

I got the Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill prints. They're beautiful and the perfect trio for our kitchen!
I love everything about this! The design, the colors. Katie is a fantastic artist. Will definitely be purchasing more skylines (and other prints) in the future. This would make a wonderful gift (but I love it so much I'm keeping this for myself)!
