Natural forms, vernacular architecture, domestic artifacts, high or low art forms; these sentient details of everyday life are my resource. As they are examined and processed, patterns emerge, resulting in variations on a theme. All images here are done by hand. Everything is based on sustained observation which yields a sense of connection to the world around me.

Recent developments;

An exhibit in August at the Starr Library of 25 drawings in diverse media compiled from 3 decades of investigating natural form.
