The Lowcountry series explores how, when we encounter landscapes, our experience is built from the sights and sounds around us, but also from the layers of our memory and our pasts. It is a type of intuitive reductionism, a filtering of sight and feeling. 


Physically, the work is botanical monoprints, batiks, sketches, impressions, photos on silk or cotton, and cyanotypes — all encased in encaustic medium made from local beeswax and colored with earth pigments. The process explores the cumulative impressions of surrounding ecological elements to “build” images by reference. The ideas are that we unconsciously collect these textures and lines and that these surroundings affect us as a bigger part of ourselves than we realize; they develop our identity as part of our sense of place.
