Molly Hashimoto’s clear-eyed scenes of birds in their natural habitats reflect an easy closeness to nature. In crisp block prints, she nimbly depicts everything from a Sandhill Crane dancing in a wetland to a Steller’s Jay perched amid snow-draped spruce boughs.
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 Forever Institute, and the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology, among others.
This calendar has twelve monthly grids with full-color artwork by Hashimoto. Each monthly grid has the previous and next month views and observes major public and culturally significant international holidays and lunar phases. Weeks run from Sunday to Saturday.
