  • This piece is part of my Non-Human Architects series. I had saved “leaf skeletons,” the remains of insect ravaged tree leaves. Not great for the tree but the collateral beauty is the lacy patterns and design - drawn at 400% of original leaf size.  Art prints available here: https://bit.ly/2FZ3hJ4
  • This is part of my Non-Human Architects series. Tiny Planet is a detailed look of a goldenrod stem gall commonly seen across Minnesota prairies and park preserves. The drawing is about 523% larger than the original gall itself and in drawing at this scale the surface offers up “mountain ranges, river beds, lake bottoms and craters” like you might see orbiting the surface of some distant planet.  Art prints of Tiny Planet are available here: https://bit.ly/2FZ3hJ4

  • Thicket No. 2 is part of my Native Wild Spaces series about seeing the beauty in the cycle of rejuvenation and decay that happens in the natural world. It takes a snippet view of an otherwise chaotic sea of prairie grasses and plants, finding a rythmic pattern of light and shadow.  It is also a reminder that our natural spaces are sacred, full of life that could be lost, if not protected. The two grasshoppers are symbolic sentinels of this.  
  • Thicket No. 1 is part of my Native Wild Spaces series that involve close cross sections of natural habitat and native plants. In this piece, it’s vegetation and milkweed found along a lake shore in early spring. It’s not just about the space itself but the creatures that depend on them. This is why I carefully place wildlife where you might not see them at first just as if you were out there in a Native Wild Space. Post Script: Plant more milkweed for monarchs and other pollinators for the…

  • Part of my Native Wild Spaces series. It’s also a story of cycles and time. The native prairie flowers have lost their bloom in fall and now bow their heads to an upcoming winter. (Future) The random pedals are remnants of their flowering prime. (Past) The bumblebee in the upper left foreshadows the coming spring and summer (Future) when these native prairie flowers will once again be in full bloom, full of nectar for the bees (and other pollinators) while the flowers of the previous seaso…

    Flight captures shorebirds in various stages of taking off and rendered with a minimal detail of shape and color. I have an on-going fascination with ornithology aerodynamics. © Kristin Maija Peterson SOLD
  • Nest Generation creates an image of hidden protection that is precariously hanging by tree branches. If undiscovered the eggs are safe, but if found or a storm hits...it’s the balance of knowns and unknowns that make us feel secure but prepare for possible risks. Highly detailed view a robins nest containing two blue eggs contrasted by a surreal background of light filtering through tree leaves. © Kristin Maija Peterson
