I created this shadowbox illustration for a local food-themed art show. It focuses on pest problems in the garden, from pine voles to leaf miners and leaf hoppers, and from there the wider food web that exists there (praying mantis, earthworms, etc.)

About Me:
More often than not, it's a walk through the woods that sparks the moment of inspiration for Cassie Shawver's personal work. She harbors a deep appreciation of nature in all its forms, and as an artist she tries to share that sense of wonder with the viewer. She enjoys pulling stories out of her surroundings--finding parallels of the human condition through personification of natural forces, with the connection between the two often spiritual. Her work is heavily influenced by folk lore from many cultures around the world and how they view their environment. In her more recent work, she also draws from a love of antique field guides, presenting information on both the scientific and spiritual aspects of her subject through hand-drawn type.

Cassie's favorite medium, by far, is watercolor...
