Blank card featuring a linoleum block print design by Natalia Wohletz of Peninsula Prints. It's perfect for sending a personalized note or displayed in a frame. The card is available individually, as a boxed set of six or in customized sets of 25 or 50.
The card design is inspired by the strong currents that push ice up along Mackinac Island's Lakeshore Drive (M-185) below Arch Rock. The iconic hunk of limestone was carved more than 10,000 years ago by waves from an ancient lake. Arch Rock in Winter earned an Honorable Mention Award in the 2020 Mackinac Island Contemporary Art Exhibition. The original print is available matted or framed.

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. Arch Rock in Winter is a finalist in the 2020 Contemporary Art Exhibition at the Richard and Jane Manoogian Mackinac Island Art Museum. The Michigan artist won first prize in the 2019 exhibition for Trail Lookout. For every card and original print sold, Natalia makes a donation to the Mackinac Island Community Foundation to support the arts and environmental initiatives.
