Ojibwa Woman Healing 2018

Each print 14" x 9"

This project was created for an artist residency at the Grand Marais Artist Colony in Grand Marais, Minnesota. I did eight woodblock prints which centered on botanical plants native to that region which were used by the Ojibwa people to heal women’s health issues. I created narratives which would incorporate the plants used in daily life. 

 

This project was partially supported by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
