McCrocklin’s drawings and sculptures of ferns highlight the elegance and tenacity of these prehistoric plants, which she discovered in the thick undergrowth of Dumbarton Oaks Park in Washington, DC. Her pen and ink drawings call attention to the unique characteristics of these ferns by incorporating the blotted-line technique to capture the wild and whimsical charm of these ancient plants. Her two large sculptures unveil the grandeur and majestic presence of the ferns. Each sculpture takes about six months to complete and is made to-scale from Dacron and copper wire and is sewn, cut, and painted, meticulously detailed.
