Secret Garden is a botanical seven-color reduction block print that tells the story of a journey to Grand Hotel's "secret garden" on Mackinac Island. With an emphasis on the yellow coneflowers and the monarch butterflies that feed on them in the carefully cultivated resort garden, this piece brings you right to this magical Mackinac scene.

I carve, ink and print each color by hand, layering from darkest to lightest hue.
