This piece of birch wood has been carved and painted by Erin Nolan.
Quote from Erin Nolan: “My prints are based on the "haiku moments" of my life—when there is a heightened awareness and I see the world with greater clarity. Details that I wouldn't otherwise notice hold special significance and their deeper meaning is revealed. I infuse spiritual meanings into the physicality of nature. At such times, I am left with a profound sense of awe, a humbleness that comes from feeling small within a vast universe, and grateful for having that moment grow and stretch me as a person. This is what I attempt to capture in my work.”
