These works are individual prints from composite print book works (sold individually in editions of 15) plus individual print series. All are etchings, some using 2 plates to combine text and image. The tree ring etchings are from the Kalevala cantos boxed books (see Artists Books in home menu). Other series combine text with rock strata (Deep Origins ed 15), cobwebs (Manala) or lake ripples (Singing the landscape). The texts are excerpts from the Finnish epic poem The Kalevala, which contains shamanic songs on themes of healing through  connecting with nature.
