Inspired By Flowers 16x20

This piece was inspired by my Chippewa culture. Plants, roots, bark and other things found in nature are used as medicine. Medicine within ceremonies and also medicine to treat illness.

A friend of mine honored me by naming this art piece and describes what the meaning is when she first saw this piece.

"...when I first saw this piece, I was sort of inspired as Ojibwe or even just myself...I draw inspiration from natural beings (plants & flowers)....We have four sacred medicines: tobacco, sage, cedar, sweetgrass....But also other medicinal plants."

This piece represents the wisdom and knowledge of those that have and still use plants and flowers for medicine to heal.
