About This Project

Client: Carleton College

Carleton College in Minnesota requested that I create a variety of illustrations for a new field guide and magazine feature focusing on the beauty and wildlife that flourishes within the Cowling Arboretum and McKnight Prairie. We produced an array of gouache paintings featuring both flora and fauna as well as a two page illustration meant to capture the atmosphere and magic of their beautiful space. Below is a selection from the 16 illustrations made.

I also created a slightly modified screen printed art print of the main illustration that was featured in The Carleton Voice that embodies the Arboretum and captures its spirit throughout the seasons. Aptly named in Swedish, “livsnjutare” which means “one who loves life fully and lives to the extreme, literally: enjoyer of life.”
