I make drawings of the natural world, transient moments of grace and beauty.
Inspired by plant and animal studies of the Northern Renaissance, Netherlandish devotional panel paintings, Eastern spiritual texts and nature mysticism as expressed through various forms of art, music, poetry and prose, my art acknowledges interconnectedness in nature and our loss of connection with the sacred.
Our planet is broken because we’ve lost relationship with the earth, with our soul. My drawings serve as more than intimate portraits; they are testaments to lives lived. They are memento mori, reminders in this age of ecocide that humans cannot live detached from nature.
May these quiet drawings remind us of our place on this planet and awaken our consciousness to the cosmos of which we are a part.
