Minnesota Killing Season

These above images are my recent series 'Minnesota Killing Season' that I've recently completed and exhibited at the Silent Aviary show with The VACVVM

My series of graphite pieces for the show I focused on the dark and deadly side of nature and paired each of my native minnesotan raptors with deadly plants, they were almost as much fun to research as the birds themselves and I spent many happy hours looking up poison plants and their effects (I'm certain I'll be on some sort of government watch list for my browsing history now!)
