More than a story it’s non-fiction with a twist.

Douglas Banner—Under the tutelage of my grandfather, I learned the names of every tree, bird, and animal in the forested hills behind our farm in Eastern Tennessee. My New England fisherman uncles gave me an entirely new understanding of the natural world on the vast North Atlantic. Moving into the magnificence of the Pacific Northwest impacted the influence nature has on every fiber of my creative spirit. I spend as many hours as I can, observing all elements in the wild. I try to capture the spirit of nature in my art. The natural world possesses some illusive knowledge that, if I look long enough, if I am still long enough, it will share with me how to enter the flow state as one.
