Stockert art: Balanced Ecosystem

Stockert describes her approach on “My work explores our world through narrative illustration; topics that interest me include feminism, sustainability, environmentalism, and the lives of cats. I often use nature imagery as a springboard for exploring these ideas, especially the natural flora and fauna of the Midwest. As well, I enjoy using imagery from popular culture for reference and for the sake of humor.”

The USF Alumni Association sponsors the exhibit. For more information, contact Gallery Director Justin Johnson at [email protected].
