Nature’s Medicine

Working with non-traditional media, I create a natural environment that warns of a future in which we can no longer heal or provide humans with the same emotional release and spiritual communion that it has for millennia. My soft sculpture fabric plants made of hand dyed upcycled textiles, embroidery floss, repurposed fiber fill and discarded medicine balls depicts a landscape that may not exist in just a few short lifetimes. The sculpturally enhanced medicine balls create an artistic representation of non-traditional medicinal practices that can help heal both humans and the planet.
