about

​​Centered around the Mojave Desert's endemic Joshua tree, my work documents the removal of a unique species for the building of new residential communities and businesses in and around Hesperia, CA. With permission from a construction site in 2015, I gathered and reclaimed organic material from a Joshua tree that was removed from its natural habitat and was destined for refuse. Through my process, I incorporate original techniques to create genuine handmade Joshua tree paper. Once created, I adhere images taken of the remaining, untouched landscape through a lift transfer process onto the handmade paper, making each piece a one of a kind print that is not only of the landscape but essentially from the landscape.
