This body of work was created for Open Studios 2018. I hope you’ll swing by in November to see these paintings in person.
In this collection I’m exploring plants, their organic forms, and the atmosphere they create in a space.
So why plants? The simplest reason is that I think they are beautiful and endlessly interesting. If my mind gets in a fretful bind, it’s often these simple, ordinary wonders that pull me out. They remind me that the burden to have ideas is something I should hold very loosely.
The second reason is that I’m interested in capturing the ambiance a plant creates in a space. Much like a plant brings an organic presence into a room, I hope my work will bring a sense of life into your favorite spaces.
My recent collection is focused on plants and the ambiance they create in a space.
