Back in March, it became clear that I’d be spending a lot of time at home in the Carolinas. The nearby Blue Ridge Mountains have been the backdrop for so many of my ideas, but I’ve never made them a main character in my work. I took this year as an opportunity to do just that. This project gave me a much-needed incentive to rediscover and truly appreciate the landscapes in my backyard- I hope it inspires you to do the same.
