“Inspired by the transformative aspects of growing cycles, regeneration, and decay, I use the spores of mushrooms to create abstract works on paper to explore adaptation and connection and that reference photosynthesis and the ancient collaboration in mycorrhiza. I began making mushroom spore print art five years ago; my work has evolved to include foraged mushrooms and plants as well as the cyanotype process. I have shown my work in New England and New York, and in collaboration with Harvard’s Arnold Arboretum, I’m creating mushroom spore herbaria for their 150th anniversary in 2022. In June, I stepped away from 25 years as a high school teacher to work full-time as an artist. When not making spore prints or cyanotypes, I can be found somewhere in the garden.”–Madge Evers
