Nature’s Medicine

Working with nontraditional media inside a repurposed camper, the artist creates a natural environment that warns of a future in which we can no longer heal itself or provide humans with the same emotional release and spiritual communion that it has for millennia.  Imagining a landscape that may not exist in just a few short lifetimes, the fabricated plants made of hand dyed upcycled textiles all medicinal and used in nontraditional medicine practices.
