This art is designed in the heart of the Pacific Northwest with inspiration found while mountain biking, running rivers, skiing and backpacking in the mountains by Anna Laxague, a wild BasqueO who's never grown up.
Raised in the Sierra Nevada, Cascades and Northwest Coast, Anna has always been surrounded by views of massive mountains, big trees, and rushing rivers. A family hobby of carving scenes from the days of fishing, hiking, bikes and adventure onto pieces of found wood eventually morphed into the art work and designs you see here.
The wood used is primarily salvaged/reclaimed. Much of it is local timber and barn wood rescued from building renovations, trail projects and carpentry, then meticulously sanded, oiled and cured. There’s a story and history connected to the Pacific Northwest in every piece.
