About the artist:
Draw. Carve. Print. Those are the three steps Michigan artist Natalia Wohletz takes to create linoleum block prints. After carving her first block in fall 2014, printmaking immediately became her passion. She enjoys exploring printmaking’s place on the border between art and craft, and the challenge of flipping traditional positive-negative space techniques when creating her work.
Natalia is inspired by Michigan's natural landscapes and wildlife. Many of her designs showcase scenes of Mackinac Island where she spent her childhood exploring the woods and lakeshore. Natalia's prints have been featured in ArtPrize and juried art exhibitions throughout Michigan. Her print, Trail Lookout, earned the Grand Prize in the 2019 Contemporary Art Exhibition at the Richard and Jane Manoogian Mackinac Island Art Museum. For every card and original print sold, Natalia makes a donation to the Mackinac Island Community Foundation to support the arts and environmental initiatives.
