Hidden Owl. 6 x 8 in. Original multi-media linoleum block print by Michigan artist Natalia Wohletz of Peninsula Prints. Limited edition print run of 100.
Hidden Owl is a multimedia block print of a barred owl sitting in the treetops, camouflaged among the leaves and branches. During the summer of 2017, Natalia watched three barred owl babies grow up in her back yard and made this print in celebration of them. Before printing the green block, the details underneath were hand-painted.
The original print may be ordered with an archival white mat and backing board in a clear, recyclable bag or with a single archival white mat in a black wood gallery frame. To design a custom frame specifically styled for your space, please order the matted original and message us to start the design process. The print design is also available as a card perfect for framing and/or sending. Cards may be customized with a personal message inside for invitations and more.
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 gallery exhibitions throughout Michigan. The artist's print, Trail Lookout, won first 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.
