My art springs from a love for the natural world, the bones of the land, the skin and fur of plants and trees. But it is the challenge of the printmaking process, its layers of reversal and carving, its always surprising results, that keep me at it year after year, image after image. I am just beginning to understand the power of visual communication, its topography and patterns that flow in the living river of time, outside the confines of word-structured thought.

Della Taylor Hoss

Between 1928 and 1942, Della lived in Yosemite Valley while her husband, Herman Hoss, was the federal magistrate and treasurer of Yosemite Park and Curry Company. In her 70's she travelled to the White Mountains to see the Bristlecone Pines with a friend. Della was awestruck by the beauty of these 4,500 year old trees. She created a series of 15 stunning colored pencil charcoal drawings capturing the life and death struggle of these amazing trees.

James McGrew

James frequently visited Yosemite National Park since he was just 4 months old and today its his primary subject and inspiration. James paints en plein air and later orchestrates his field studies with photography and strong visual memory to create his refined studio paintings. Such works often tell stories or serve as complex metaphors.
