Autumn Higgins is a Minneapolis based artist who specializes in illustrations of her local environment. Autumn works in both illustrated functional porcelain, and watercolor paintings, depicting observations from her surroundings. Her work acts a portrait of daily life, by showing details of the day that can often be overlooked. Her work brings attention to the beauty of the urban landscape. Autumn creates narratives in each piece by illustrating elements that are representative and unique to local landscape. A viewer familiar with the setting can view the illustrations and recognize their city in the landmarks and buildings. The imagery is also vague enough that a wider range of people can relate to the content. Each piece allows the viewer to identify with the scenes depicted and form their own narratives to create a relationship with the work.
