Artist Statement

In the deserts of New Mexico, not far from the Trinity nuclear test site in Jornada del Muerto, there is life. Thousands of sandhill cranes, snow geese, and other animals winter in the wetlands of the Rio Grande River. After foraging by day, the cranes return to the wetlands each evening, landing in family units of two and three. This image was adapted from a photograph I took of the sunset crane landings. - Karen Blaha

I'm a chemical engineer by day, and a photographer/illustrator by night. I love art deco poster design, and have designed posters for several park sites and for my favorite sport, water polo. My photographs have appeared in several architecture books. You can check out my photography on flickr at, or my blog at

About See America

See America is reviving the legacy of the New Deal arts projects by building a new collection of posters celebrating our shared natural landmarks and treasured sites. Proceeds support National Parks Conservation Association, the independent, nonpartisan voice working to strengthen and protect our nation’s natural, historical, and cultural heritage.

About our Prints

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.
