Grove Series

Trees in the dense and dripping forests of the Pacific Northwest, groves of cultivated walnut orchards in France, and manicured city parks germinated the drawings that form the Grove Series. It can be posited that an individual tree has as much character in shape, attitude, color, and season, as a single person. In groups, they form relationships through competition, selection, harmony, and external conditions. Concentrating on drawing communities of trees, I respond to their order and complexity.

All works are in colored pencil, graphite and oil pastel.
