Porcupine Mountain Wilderness State Park

August 19 - September 1, 2019

I had the honor of being selected as an Artist in Residence (AIR) at Porcupine Mountain Wilderness State Park in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for 2 weeks.  It is an expansive 60,000 acre park of Lake Superior Lakeshore, rugged terrain, lakes, swift rivers and old growth forests.  During my visit I explored the many hiking trails, along streams and mountain ridges taking in the scenic views and photographing them for future art projects.  Back at the artist cabin I transformed  some of these images into silk paintings that were later finished into art quilts. It was a wonderful experience! I look forward to participating as an AIR in other state and national parks around the country.
