LACAWAC SANCTUARY ARTIST RESIDENCY
I spent two weeks during July 2018 at an Artist Residency at Lacawac Sanctuary in Lake Ariel Pennsylvania. I stayed in an old hunting lodge with four other artists and writers and had many wonderful conversations. During these weeks I responded to the 500 acres of forest and the natural elements around me. I was also listening to the novel Overstory by Richard Powers while creating these images. This novel weaves the narratives of several characters with stories about magnificent trees. I left with a new found sense of wonder for the life cycle of forests and importance of protecting our most precious resources.
