This suite of prints was created during the pandemic quarantine of Spring, 2020. Unable to work in the ECU studios, I was able to print these lithographs and relief prints on a small press during lockdown in my own apartment.
Suffering through initial anxiety about a viral pandemic, I turned my attention to nature and the age-old connection between healing and botany. As a printmaker, my natural reaction was to begin studying and making prints of medicinal plants. Unexpectedly, the making of these prints became the nerve tonic I needed to foster serenity in my seclusion.
