Artist Statement: My husband and I travel frequently between Illinois and Wisconsin, visiting family. I never fail to exclaim at the top of one certain hill, “It’s so beautiful.” Spread below me is a tapestry of red barns, fallow fields etched with stubble, and green fields woven with this year’s crops. What could be more Midwestern than that?
