A slushy mix of art and non-art that I use as references for my own art.

Quote from her website:
"There is a type of lichen which is very common in the Finnish archipelago and my family's summer house sits on a large granite hill covered with it. I have always seen certain shapes as islands or continents, and decided to affix rub-on letters directly to the lichens to identify them as the places I recognized. When I had finished, the whole hill had become a kind of scrambled atlas. The Moss Maps series consists of about 20 photographs like those shown here."
