Molly Hashimoto’s clear-eyed scenes of birds in their natural habitats reflect an easy closeness to nature. In wintry block prints, she nimbly depicts everything from a cardinal perched amid the mist to a Clark’s nutcracker surveying the crisp vista.
From her home in the Pacific Northwest, Hashimoto (American, b. 1951) explores wild areas, oases that provide refuge for countless rare species and moments of awakening for millions of human visitors. In addition to her own artistry, Hashimoto is dedicated to connecting people to nature through hands-on art experiences. Camera and sketchbook in hand, she can be found leading aspiring artists out of doors for plein air painting or into a studio for a block-printing or watercolor workshop. She teaches at the North Cascades Institute, the Yellowstone Association Institute, and the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, among others. Printed on recycled paper. Inside Message: Season's Greetings. Twenty assorted holiday cards (5 each of 4 designs) with envelopes in a decorative box. Measures 5 x 7 in.
