The Forest's Secret
Mixed--photography, digital illustration, handmade props and costumes as seen in images; images printed on maple wood panels and glazed with hand-lacquered resin.
The artist hand-crafted the entire outfit seen in this piece for her Dreamscapes series, which is ongoing. The corset is made from birch bark, moss, and ivy. The skirt is made of moss and ferns and was constructed the night before the shoot with fresh foliage. The headdress was made with hand-painted pine cones sewed onto a cornucopia. The character in the image is a forest spirit who protects the special "seed" in her hands, as it is a child of the forest."
