Artist Susan Hoenig connects Earth and Art to make visible the relationship between habitat, plant, and animal life. She studies the evolutionary impact of the forest understory and leads Walking Tours of herEcological Leaf Sculptures situated beneath eleven trees along a public trail in Graeber Woods Preserve, Franklin Township, New Jersey. Through her exploration of the forest understory, she creates her ongoing ecologically themed Black Walnut ink paintings. Hoenig’s art integrates the life cycle of trees and the synchronous relationship in the pattern of forest regeneration and
the impact of global warming on our changing forest ecosystems.
