Field Study Laminate

A sense of adventure and the idea of investigating the natural world up close and from afar was at the core of every print that I created for Field Study. Yet there were very specific inspriations as well. I got to know moths quite intimately after researching how to cure an infestation in our kitchen pantry-though the beauties that appear in "Sinister Swarm" look nothing like our household variety. Migration maps of various birds around the world started to look like lacework, and so the "Migratory Lace" print was born. Pouring over historical ink drawings of meticulously numbered and labeled plant life drawings gave birth to prints like "Specimen". And my "Cell Structure" floral, while cute and fashionabe was conceived by looking through plant like DNA slides. Most of the artwork came about in less than obvious ways, and the collection itself is just the same, unexpected and entirely exciting!
