Forage is a beautiful collection of prints on Essex and Essex Yarn Dyed Linen/Cotton substrates by Anna Graham (aka Noodlehead) for Robert Kaufman.
Anna explains how Forage was inspired: “The collection is inspired by where I live. I think it’s hard not to be inspired by nature and my surroundings. Of course I feel that western Wisconsin along the Mississippi River is an amazing place to live and be outdoors – and incredibly inspiring! I snapped a lot of inspiration pictures while hiking and biking along local trails. Some of the prints are inspired by State Parks I’ve visited both in my childhood and as an adult. The Effigy Mounds National Monument is especially significant to me. I remember visiting as a child and then I also began my college education studying Archaeology (and later graduated with an Art degree/Anthropology minor) and Anthropology. It’s fascinating to see how past cultures lived in our area.”
55% linen, 45% cotton; 44″ wide.
