Artist Statement

Trees, forests and flowers are iconic and an endless font of inspiration. In drawing these, I locate different textures and emphasize the shapes of trees and differing values in blue pencil and graphite to speak to their sturdiness and the capacity to withstand these times. Sometimes they're in graphite or paint. They're a metaphor for life. We have a constant relationship with them. As Sara Maitland, author of From The Forest, describes, "[r]ight from the beginning, the relationship between people and forest was not primarily antagonistic and competitive, but symbiotic." And from the slow process of creating drawings, floral paintings and animals portraits found in our lands, a meditative presence occurs.
