The Great Lakes

Becky Pobst's avatar Becky Pobst

Inspired by "The Fountain of the Great Lakes" by Lorado Taft in Chicago, I wanted to capture the personality and history of the five Great Lakes. Using cut paper, I illustrated elements of each lake from the native flora and fauna, to natural phenomenon, to their cultural histories. Full of details and color, each image is a rich illustration of a very unique part of the planet. Artwork is available for sale individually or as a collection. Please email for inquiries.
