Artist Joanna Hedrick Transforms Dead Leaves Into Beautiful Land Art Creations

As the fall season ushers in crisp weather, a curious artistic display of canary yellow labyrinths and gold honeycombs pops up below the gingko trees at Sacramento State University.

The intricate leaf art is the handiwork of Sacramento native Joanna Hedrick, a counselor at the university’s Student Service Center and a prospective fall 2018 recipient of a Bachelor of Arts degree in philosophy. As the golden leaves fall from the balding trees, Hedrick takes a rake around campus in the late afternoon to “carve” out complex designs—something she’s been doing since 2013 as an annual gift to students when final exams loom large.

With a background in art and landscape design, Hedrick draws inspiration from rock arrangements by famed British environmental artist Andy Goldsworthy, whose sculptures have been featured everywhere from the National Museum of Scotland to Stanford University.
