My monoprints are scenes painted from nature; landscapes, still lifes, and organic forms that are simple yet contain complexities of color and texture much like those often overlooked in the natural world. I am influenced by the places I have visited, inspired not only by the raw natural beauty but also the emotional responses they can elicit. Many of my images come from my own backyard, from the trees that surround my house, from my walks through the woods. In my work, each tree possesses its own personality. They can emerge intertwined in groups or individual “portraits”. I attempt to translate these through transition of colors, light, shapes, and texture.
