"Shelter" is a hand-sewn dress made with the guidance of my grandmother. The dress was dyed with cyanotype chemical and printed with flowers and leaves harvested from my Grandmother's childhood in Wayne National Forest. Patches stitched onto the dress are photographic vignettes of the rural Ohio landscape.
