Creating in new ways


A black oval paper with a block-printed deer and the name 'James'. The paper is resting on a spider plant.

I recently started learning how to make block prints, and I am looking forward to taking some more time to learn in the coming weeks. I made this print of a deer for my mom, which is my impression of a piece of art her twin brother, James, made for her many years ago.
