Mushrooms and wombs are the fruiting bodies of large life life systems. The mushroom is what we see of a vast organism, the baby is what we see from a woman’s womb - two forms critical to perpetuating life.
In an effort to continue the sense of interconnection inspired by mushrooms a portion of sales from Collection V will be donated to complete the creation of the Creative Field Guide to Northeastern Oklahoma, A book made to encourage middle-school-aged youth and up to learn about Northeastern Oklahoma's native species and to create art inspired by experiences in nature. Edited by Liz Blood and with contributions from 40+ Oklahoma artists and writers—including original fiction, poetry, visual art, and art and writing prompts—this book will be printed in early 2022 and given away for free to Tulsa-area kids.
