The body of work brings awareness to the delicacy and vulnerability of Earth's pollinators. This painting  was made with blueberries, Spanish saffron, pokeberry and white ink on watercolor paper made from post-consumer waste. Pollinators is a body of work made from foraged materials, fruits and flowers and is ultimately an experimental body of wok highlighting Earths botanical palette. 

Blooming Earth, 2024

I will create 24 new botanical paintings for a solo exhibition with the Hamilton County Public Library East. This exhibition will be on view in the front window gallery of the library. I will also host a workshop with the library. Dates TBA. I am grateful to the library for celebrating artists with disabilities as well as artists of various ethnic origins.
