About Gene Jaress
I have been working artist over the past 50 years. I am currently working on woodblock prints, and a couple of paintings. My artwork is influenced by the light and atmospheric conditions created by the Salish Sea, Skagit Valley and Mount Cultus looming to the east.
"Without craftsmanship inspiration is a mere reed shaken in the wind".
I am embarking on a series of woodblock prints and etchings. The above artist's print was a collaboration using Gary Giovane's design. I carved 5 blocks for this print. There will be a limited edition run of 25 prints.
Giclée Prints Available
Giclée prints are high resolution digital prints using a special ink-jet printer with pigment based inks on archival quality paper or on canvas.
I have scanned several of my paintings and reproduced them in a giclée format. This makes them more affordable. They are matted and framed and run $225 and up, depending on size and whether printed on paper or canvas. Contact me if you are interested in purchasing one.

Notes from a Sketchbook
I just added these to the website, notes over 30 years, sometimes on a scrap of paper, or on the back of a business card, whatever was handy.
