Transformations into the botanical conversation: MFA Thesis - PrintmakingAs a hand papermaker and printmaker, I see my work as a hybrid between the two processes. I am interested in creating local-plant based art by using the natural environment as a source of inspiration, raw material, and the beginnings of a social conversation. The works I make uses forms that echo themselves in the natural world and attempt to explore the symbiotic relationship between humans and their environment. Through four forms of study I explore the use of the seed bomb as a method of natural farming, material exploration of raw fibers, natural dyes derived from plant material, and the use of pulp as a sculptural medium.
