Singleton created an installation of sculpture and pulp paintings investigating native and invasive flora that clutch Louisiana between the fingers of their roots. The works transformed natural materials into art using hand paper making techniques and clay and referencing maps of the coasts and swamps in Southern Louisiana where she acquired the materials. She showcased the work in the first annual Wetlands Art Tour at Byrdie’s Gallery in the St. Claude Art District.

Megan Singleton’s work explores the intersection of dendritic systems and patterns found in waterways, plants, and paths of travel.  She is adjunct faculty at St Louis University, teaching fiber arts.

“The creative and scientific collaborations facilitated by the staff at A Studio in the Woods have introduced me to many people looking at the same landscapes and plants with … similar research interests and totally different approaches.”
