Salt drawing,  2003-2012 "The major investigation of this series began while living in Salem, MA, a region steeped in history and a formidable import/export center from 1782-1812. Among the many import items were spices, particularly salt, used heavily for its preservative qualities. The technique used to create these works included multiple varieties of salt, dissolved in a water/ salt ratio that is then applied to the paper, allowed to absorb and grow crystals."(Hanson)
