dc.description.abstract This elegy in etchings for my grandparents and the life's work that connected them creates a metaphorical portrait of them by illustrating a series of defining moments in the arc of their lives. Each print tells a short story, and the short stories connect to give a more complete portrait of their lives and their hobby (or obsession). I only experienced the tail end of that journey, but in retracing the earlier steps I have come to understand family in a way I hadn't before. The style of the drawings was inspired by my grandmother, Sarah, whose incredibly detailed botanical drawings are displayed in my parents' house. In part, this is my way of carrying on the family tradition. I'm not growing orchids, but I'm following in Sarah's footsteps and transforming this family fascination into another form.
