I created the Trophy Series (Stag, Antelope and Bison) to bring attention to the fact that we revere animals more when they are dead, than when they are living. In a time when we are seeing the beginning of a large mammal extinction on our planet, it would be my hope that we find ways to co-exist with wild animals. Here the trophy heads are surrounded by wreaths, much like a horse would be adorned after a winning race, to represent their contribution to the ecosystem and life on this planet.

This piece is a "relief engraving.” It is in the block print or relief family of printmaking, which refers to two surfaces, one lower than the other, so that the highest surface prints. I hand carve each image with small but tough tools called burins, or gravers. The remaining surface is rolled with ink and pressed through the printing press. Each print taken from the plate is part of an edition, and numbered. My limited editions are always under 100 since they are inked and cranked by hand on my printing press.  Printed on 100% Cotton Rag Paper.
