This work is an exploration of bioregionalism, the practice of familiarizing oneself with the natural elements of a region to have a deeper appreciation for and understanding of its geographical and biological diversity, as well as the history of its human stewardship. The current focus of my own familiarization is the geology of Maryland, specifically common rocks such as mica schist and serpentines. I process these into pigments which I use in the process of paint-making. Likewise, materials such as rust, copper oxide, charcoal, and varieties of plant matter are processed into ink. This area of my practice began in the midst of the pandemic. Hiking around Baltimore and Maryland became extremely important to me as a way to both cope with the loss we collectively feel and to connect to the elements of our natural world which continue to function, apathetic to our gaze.
