I got to taste some morels once, and I loved them. I don't usually like mushrooms, but these were quite tasty. So I really wanted to burn a morel and this is the outcome. I'm very happy with how this piece turned out. The daisy is more or less sad/unhappy that this morel has taken over the area and the sunlight. I love how you almost feel like you could pick the morel out of the paper like it were real.

Well, I’m Jessica Stepp. I'm a philosopher by degree, but artist and poet by heart. I'm passionate about nature, which influences my art greatly, even if it is mostly surreal and fantasy. I grew up in the Midwest and love what it has to offer in way of natural beauty. Hiking and wandering the land is a way that I get inspired to draw. I also let my mind wander and whatever it creates I put to paper. I'm a quiet person and very thoughtful so I think about what I do in art and how others take it. I want the viewer to enjoy it as much as I do in creating it. Being quiet and shy is a hardship for an artist though. It makes for putting your art out there rough. I have a wonderful family who pushed me to get my art out and to not be afraid of what others say.
