In this series, I look to nature for inspiration. I am thinking of the feeling evoked when light filters through trees in a forest or a colorful garden, and the connectedness, freedom and abandon one feels when immersed in the natural world.
I pay great attention to creating a sense of depth. Whether I achieve this through the tools used to subtract paint from the surface, the undulating light and dark waves of color or the layering dry brush work under and over the sinuous botanical carvings, themes of depth and transience found in nature are always close at hand.
