These paintings and prints were created as a body just before lockdown in my state. I was looking forward to a lush spring with lots of activities planned. When the stay-at-home directives came, and we were all trying to get used to a new and frightening reality, working on this series gave me solace, balance and a positive focus to my days. The many steps involved–printing, composing, adhering, polishing, trimming, wiring and documenting–were calming. The imagery of plants and foliage helped me ponder the larger issues of our lives on this planet as humans.
