Since childhood, I have been enamored through deep roots with the magical beauty & memories of the natural wilds of Northeast Ohio. The rhododendron leaves are in honor of my mother's memory & the chipmunk is a tribute to the memory of my father's love for exploration hiking & the stories that I grew up hearing about my grandmother.
All native species representation in this piece, including the sculpted acorns; long tailed chipmunk; sculpted & handsewn poseable fungi: Amanita muscaria; hypnum moss; maple, rhododendron, & apple leaves.
