About the Paper. I print on Red River Paper’s Aurora Art Natural 250, an acid-free, 100% cotton paper made in the U.S. This paper has a distinctive elegance and warmth, with a natural white tone and semi-smooth surface. Aurora Art Natural 250 contains no optical brighteners.

About the Inks. I use pigment inks, which resist fading. If you frame your print using UV acylic or glass and hang it away from bright light, the chances of it fading before fifty years have elapsed is very low. Your print will stay vibrant throughout your lifetime and beyond.

About the artwork. This digital collage, titled Shere Khan and the Magic Mushrooms, was created from this photo of Shere Khan, the resident eastern tiger salamander at the Deep Creek Lake State Park Discovery Center in western Maryland. Shere Khan is draped over a white Amanita mushroom photographed in the West Virginia Botanic Garden near Morgantown, West Virginia.

Shere Khan is a hefty tiger salamander with a goofy grin. Like his wild brethren, he could grow up to thirteen inches in length on a diet of worms, insects, frogs, slugs, snails, and grubs. Although the most widespread of North American salamanders, the tiger salamander’s eastern habitat is highly fragmented and negatively impacted by agricultural chemicals. The ongoing destruction of breeding sites in marshy areas, grasslands, and forests has caused populations to decline, making educational ambassador animals like Shere Khan all that more important.

Linda Gribko is an avid gardener, naturalist, author, artist, and photographer living just outside Morgantown, West Virginia, on a one-acre property she calls Yellow Bird's Rest. She's been gardening since the age of three, when she was put to work plucking rocks from the family vegetable patch, and was gifted her first growlight set-up at the age of eight. Linda is best known for her wildflower photography and the digital mandala art she creates from her nature photos, but is also a mixed media artist and published author. Her quirky first novel, "Giving Voice to Dawn", was published in November 2016 and was followed up with "The Lion's Apprentice" in June 2020. The series follows the magical romp of a woman plucked by the Universe from the cubicles of Corporate America and dropped into the crease between "this world and that" where Spirit Animals carry messages, disembodied voices spout wisdom, and you never know who might show up to walk you back home.
