I was captivated by the beauty of Superior, the inland ocean. I was equally enchanted by the understory of the boreal forest. It's endless microcosm of lichen, moss, ferns, wildflowers continue to spark my inspiration. I started a series of etchings while on the island. I drew everyday, mostly with fine tip permanent ink pens and I used my magnifying glasses to marvel at the life growing on life just in a small section of the forest floor.
