I am an immigrant from Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina. I work across the media of printmaking, drawing, photography and poetic text. I incorporate images of mycelial networks, mushrooms and invasive plants into my work as metaphors for displacement, thriving in unlikely circumstances, migration and assimilation. Both poems and prints are driven by these questions: what emerges as fertile, as full of possibility when we recall a lost life and culture? Staring into unfolding climate catastrophe, how can we recognize seeds of renewal?
