All of the pigments are locally foraged by me here at Wild Ozark and the surrounding area. I used 12 x 16″ Arches hot press paper mounted onto board. It is varnished and framed in barnwood without glass. The varnish offers UV and environmental protection.
The painting is sold, but will remain on exhibit until August 28.

In 2018 she began experimenting with watercolor painting, using her local pigments.

Her inspiration is nature – the beauty, and the inherent cycle of life and death, destruction and regeneration.
