What I see during time spent in the forest and at the shore is translated and re-formed during the process of drawing. My intention is to reveal a spectacle of wood, water, light and atmosphere; to share my enthusiasm for these processes and patterns that overlay, harmonize and echo one another.
Each depiction evolves on black paper using white prismacolor pencil. As one's eyes adjust to the monochromatic setting, the details of light and contour emerge.
