The beauty of life processes and the environment guides these images. The word environment though, holds none of the feeling I have for places or budding branches. So I paint and draw towards a language describing the world in a way that more closely mirrors our complex ties to this place, our place.

These works are still lives and landscapes, field notes and occasions, letters and witnessings. Like the painters of 17th Century Dutch still-lives, I am interested in illustrating mundane objects with a care and regard for them, and an emphasis on the transitory nature of life.
