Artist Statement

This is a series of drawings done from the Landscape in and around New York City. Many of the drawings I consider to be tree portraits .

The drawings are done in pen and ink. I am using black ink diluted with varying amounts of water to give me different values to work with. I build the image up slowly with a watercolor brush using layer upon layer of diluted ink ,and add to it layers of crosshatching with a quill pen to add detail.

The idea for this series came to me over several days one winter while walking my dog in Carl Schurz Park. With the leaves gone from the trees and more of the limbs and trunk visible, I saw in some trees qualities that I responded to emotionally. I am interested in the way that some trees grow in response to their environment, and I am using this group of drawings as a way to investigate this.
