Activity

  • Part of my Non-Human Architects series. An enlarged view of a small bird’s nest (possibly a wren’s) that I have had in my studio for years. This examines the structure at large scale (300% its original size) with its intricate weaving and detail. This project took well over 300 hours to complete. It was a meditative process I almost did not want to end. Artist prints are available here.
  • This piece is part of my Non-Human Architects series. I had saved “leaf skeletons,” the remains of insect ravaged tree leaves. Not great for the tree but the collateral beauty is the lacy patterns and design - drawn at 400% of original leaf size.  Art prints are available here. 
  • This is part of my Non-Human Architects series. Tiny Planet is a detailed look of a goldenrod stem gall commonly seen across Minnesota prairies and park preserves. The drawing is about 523% larger than the original gall itself and in drawing at this scale the surface offers up “mountain ranges, river beds, lake bottoms and craters” like you might see orbiting the surface of some distant planet.  Art prints of Tiny Planet are available here.

  • Thicket No. 2 is part of my Native Wild Spaces series about seeing the beauty in the cycle of rejuvenation and decay that happens in the natural world. It takes a snippet view of an otherwise chaotic sea of prairie grasses and plants, finding a rythmic pattern of light and shadow.  It is also a reminder that our natural spaces are sacred, full of life that could be lost, if not protected. The two grasshoppers are symbolic sentinels of this.  
  • Thicket No. 1 is part of my Native Wild Spaces series that involve close cross sections of natural habitat and native plants. In this piece, it’s vegetation and milkweed found along a lake shore in early spring. It’s not just about the space itself but the creatures that depend on them. This is why I carefully place wildlife where you might not see them at first just as if you were out there in a Native Wild Space. Post Script: Plant more milkweed for monarchs and other pollinators for the…
