Jan Heath is a print-maker living and creating in Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. Jan's love of animals and the outdoors is evident in her wonderful depictions of landscapes, trees, barnyard critters, and various other living things.
This wonderful image of a raccoon is an original print called a linocut. The image is engraved into linoleum (the negative of the image, to be precise), and the remaining surface is inked and transferred onto paper by hand. Jan prints limited editions, and each print is signed and numbered.
Up a Tree is unmatted and printed on off-white paper. Image is 5" by 7"; paper is a little over 7" by 9".
