2020 Pollinators Calendar
The 2020 Pollinators Calendar, available here, features 12 illustrations showing butterflies, moths, bees, and beetles and some of the native North American plants they help pollinate.
These images are a series of illustrations I have been working on in watercolor and gouache, often finishing digitally.
These images were started during a week at the Calumet Artist Residency program in July 2017, when I spent a lot of time hiking and looking up close at botanical and insect specimens native to the Indiana Dunes. I’m fascinated with the ways in which we interact with the natural environment around us, and also enjoy the challenge of illustrating hands.
This illustration was created for a downtown art project placing local artists’ work on utility boxes.
