"Knotweed Sea"
Watercolor on Paper

The American Bison has survived from being practically exterminated by over hunting, now surviving in small numbers throughout the United States. Japanese Knotweed is an invasive plant that is overtaking the land and choking out native species. This painting examines the dynamic between invasive and threatened species.
