The Continuing Discoveries of a 21st Century Naturalist

Subtle Nuances in Nature I often wander our property on a nice day taking photographs of seasonal plants, birds and butterflies.  We have nicknamed our property ‘Butterfly Hill’ because so many visit us here – both in quantity and variety of species.  As a naturalist I keep life lists of birds and butterflies I’ve seen and/or … Continue reading

In deciding the next group in “The Making Of” series, in which I illustrate my process in creating artwork, from an idea to a painting.  I have made this choice precisely because of the time of year.

The Making of “Growing Girls” Series

A drawing is a translation.  That is to say each mark on the paper is consciously related, not only to the real or imagined “model”, but also to every mark and space already set out on the paper…..Every time a figuration is evoked in a drawing, everything about it has been mediated by consciousness, either … Continue reading
