The Forest. The Mountain. Words by Joshua Bender, Artwork by Kellie Cox

The story follows a person who wanders alone into the forest desiring to be lost, but keeps encountering echos of civilization amidst the beauty of the natural world. The narrator’s journey from avoidance to acceptance is recounted through Joshua's descriptive vignettes and Kellie's impressionistic paintings and illustrations. Dreamlike, thoughtful and at times otherworldly, The Forest. The Mountain. marries the written word and painted image to create a thoughtful meditation on the human spirit.

The Forest. The Mountain.  Available for purchase on Etsy!

Kellie uses traditional art techniques to create modern botanical illustrations, public art, murals and large scale botanical paintings. She is inspired by beautiful native plants, nature, trees, and wildlife that she observes on her travels with her husband and little furry dog. Her passion in life is to create beautiful pieces of artwork, both small and large. With her public murals she hopes to inspire the local communities to garden with native plantings to create habitats and food resources for our native wildlife. Originally from Delaware, Kellie spent a lot of her childhood frolicking through gardens and drawing flowers, which lead her to receive a bachelor’s degree from University of Delaware with a double major in Landscape Horticulture and Plant Science in 2009. Now working as a Landscape Designer for Ginkgo Gardens, Kellie continues to work in the horticulture and art field, expanding her inspiration and artistic expression.

 

Kellie has installed over a dozen murals in Ithaca, New York and Washington, D.C. Located in Washington D.C., Kellie is excited to share her work throughout the city. Her most recent exhibit was one of her large-scale sunflower murals featured at the U.S. Botanic Gardens in 2018, part of the exhibit 'Wall Flowers: Botanical Murals. Interested in an art piece or have an art project in mind?
