In 2004, after years of admiring each other’s work, Kimberly MacArthur Graham and Bonnie Ferrill Roman embarked on an expansive collaborative project that would end up spanning several years, resulting in a large body of collaborative work. In all cases, MacArthur Graham created the oil and mixed media on panel elements of the pieces, and Ferrill Roman created the handmade paper & branches elements. Neither artist worked on the other’s ‘part’ - but they did respond to each other’s work to create integrated artworks. The artists presented three collaborative “solo” exhibitions of the resulting works; The project became known as “Cross-Pollination”
