The series of prints  based on the objects from the Fowler, reflects a fusion of botanicals, maps, and photographic references to the historical objects and images. Drawing from her own heritage’s blending of cultures, of la tercera raiz or the third root, she was able to bring images together to explore her own actual history and that of many others.
