Lady Shroom - pencil
14 x 21cm, signed
A pencil sketch created from photographs and studies of various mushrooms. Here I used multiple studies of the oyster mushroom. Fungi, and the mycelium, play a vital role in our ecosystems, sometimes taking hundreds of years to form highly complex underground networks that benefit much of the surrounding flora and fauna. These are often damaged by the planting of monoculture, wildfires and deforestation.
