With this series I wanted to explore the protagonist of Shirley Jackson's 1962 novel, We Have Always Lived in the Castle. The eighteen-year-old Mary Katherine Blackwood, or "Merricat." She practices sympathetic magic in order to keep her family out of harm's way. Extremely superstitious, she exudes mysterious behavior and further shows signs of psychopathic tendencies and my wish was to explore that qualities of that character. I went to the botanic garden with a friend and we explore the nature of the both protagonist: the model and the nature. We wanted to make it simple so I just used what nature gave me that afternoon.
