"While living in Alpine, TX I became increasingly interested in the fragility of the West Texas landscape, including many of the species of animals that live in it. The construction of a border wall between the US and Mexico threatens these species further. I created a series of prints highlighting the majesty of these creatures in order to bring awareness to the immediate danger they face.

There are many species, many more than I have carved of course, that will be harmed by a wall. I have chosen these particular subjects due to their presence in The Big Bend and surrounding regions, their current “endangered” or “threatened” status, my creative intrigue in carving their likeness, and their having of eyeballs from which I could carve 'star strings' (so many beautiful cacti left out)."

Dana Falconberry is an artist and musician living in Texas and Michigan. She grew up dancing classical ballet and modern dance in Dearborn, MI before attending Hendrix College in Arkansas. In college she studied songwriting, which prompted her move to Austin in 2005. Touring, recording, and leading a band for over a decade, her last album From The Forest Came The Fire was released with a National Park Tour in 2016. Deciding to transition out of the music industry and into the visual art realm, she worked for 6 years as a lead stitcher/designer at Fort Lonesome, a custom chainstitch embroidery company based in Austin. She is now focusing on her own art, including linoleum block prints and watercolor paintings under the name Falconberry Prints. Her work draws on the natural world, often including supernatural elements playing with the concepts of time and the effects of humankind on natural landscapes. She has recently moved to her new home near the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in Northern Michigan.
