2018 - Present
This series is an investigation of what we treasure. Some pieces are drawn on a wood surface shaped like a traditional jewelry pendant. Instead of harboring precious stones, this series of pendants features images of wild flora indigenous to midwestern America. Many species of plants are experiencing decline due to human activity and in this series, they are often illustrated as black ink drawings.
Through the imagery of hands that manipulate and grasp, the works allude to the negative environmental impacts of human interaction. Even at the small scale of wildflowers, our landscape is changing. These rich natural resources may not be something we always inherit.
