Mimi Williams lives and works in Olympia WA. She finds endless riches in her world there, both in its natural beauty and in the everyday stories of her neighbors - every and any neighbor, including the friend shown here in "Joyride."
"I created [Joyride] to capture the spirit of the freedom on the road together with a wistful yearning as the dog looks at the birds he would so love to chase," Williams says. This piece is a linoleum cut block print, as is all her work, and the strength and clarity of the medium lends itself very well to a vivid image and the equally vivid feelings it evokes. You can feel the wind in the dog's ears, and see the beady-eyed yearning as he scopes out those unmissable crows.
Williams' work can be found at her website, www.mimiwilliamsprintmaker.com; I found her first at her Etsy shop.
