Tom Killion

Was up at Pt Reyes this weekend and had a frame to drop off for Tom Killion, a wonderful printmaker who lives and works up there. If you don’t know Tom’s work, you’re in for a treat. He works in the tradition of Japanese woodblock printmaking, but has been at it long enough to have evolved his own very distinctive style. Tom’s extraordinarily well-traveled, and his work reflects his travels. But in recent years it seems he’s focused more on California, having produced a book on the High Sierra, The High Sierra of California, and most recently, Mt Tamalpais in Marin County, California. Titled Tamalpais Walking,it’s written with the poet Gary Snyder and published by Heyday Books. Tom was generous enough to give me a copy of the book, and it is very beautiful. Check him out at (You can find examples of how we’ve framed Tom’s prints in the “Prints and Works on Paper” section of the Portfolio.)
