About the Design:
I think Luna moths are significant for many people. I remember seeing them at Unicoi State Park while camping as a little girl. As adult, whenever I see one, it's still magical. I put all the best stuff into the design of this block print---giant ethereal moths, fireflies, ferns, stars, and bluebells-- all topped off with a distinctive Art Nouveau style that I personally love. Each piece is hand rolled, and pulled by me, so each print comes out slightly differently. I made this blue Artist proof version as a request from a customer and I love the result!
This particular print is made from a hand carved “soft kut” printmaking block.
The printed area of this artwork measures approximately 12 x12 inches.
Includes a custom cut, acid free matboard and backing board which measures 16x16 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 Artist Proof is signed 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.
