Item details

Handmade item

Potato is the most important non-grain food crop in the world, providing food for people all over the world. A member of the Nightshade family, she may be the most down to earth esculent that comes from this magical family. Rich in nutrition and versatile in the kitchen, anyone who says they don't love Potato is lying!

This magnet is three inches tall and depicts an original watercolor I did in 2018. It sticks well to cars and fridges. What else could you need than this lumpy potato?

The Lowly Esculent is a series of illustrated and written works that I began in 2017. These works are the marriage of my obsession with plant-human relationships, my deep concern over our treatment of the Earth's lands, waters, and ecosystems, and my affection for art and creation.

Through these illustrations, I share the fascinating histories of some of the most ecologically, ethnobotanically, and economically important plant species. I seek to raise awareness to the injustices that have been integral to the food system since the inception of agriculture and am determined to bring our attention to where our food comes from and to the soil and hands that grew it.

Esculent is an antiquated word meaning something edible, typically used for plant foods. The word “lowly” is often used negatively, but to me, it is a word representative of things that are humble, commonplace, and, most importantly, that are of the people. When you support my work, you are not just supporting an artist and her dreams, but you are supporting an activist determined to make a difference through her art.
