Treasure our resources, take care of our planet.

In this new series the veins of the leaf and the branches of the tree are intertwined with the red of the veins symbolizing life blood. The use of the square canvas is indicative of our need for order, while nature rarely presents itself with perfect symmetry. The circular brain like quality of the sea grape leaf addresses the cyclical aspect of nature. Brittle dead tree roots are juxtaposed with the illuminated supple leaf.


 Another series exploring the way light affects the way we perceive an individual plant or tree. A tree bathed in the soft light of twilight is quite different from a tree at noon. A single flower in the morning light is more mysterious than a profusion of flowers in broad daylight. A leaf becomes jewel-like with the golden light of late afternoon shining through.


As an artist I capture each flower and leaf at its most magnificent moment. Taking great care with the fine details takes considerably more time than an impressionistic approach, but I feel it is the only way to do sufficient justice to these incredible gifts of nature.”
