My first solo exhibit showcasing work that explores the question of what is considered beautiful in the natural world and how that can clash with our own aesthetics and understanding. Works include large-scale detailed drawings and watercolors retrospect looking to answer this question as it relates to climate change, native versus invasive plants, and our interconnected relationship to all living things.

Terra Kind Studio showcases the creative work of visual artist and designer Kristin Maija Peterson. Growing up among prairies, lakes, rivers, and oak savannas along with her project work with environmental nonprofit organizations have collectively influenced her creative path. Kristin works in watercolor, graphite, color pencil, oil pastels and pen and ink, interpreting in detail the beautiful chaos within native wild spaces and its inhabitants found living there. She sees all living creatures as kin and is always kind to spiders.
