Where to find




Work from the Open Wabi experience

Scorched Sequoia Sempervirens

Medium: acrylic on paper
Year: 2017
Dimensions: 11" x 14"
This is part of a series of drawings that is based on scorched bark of Redwood trees encountered in Northern California. In this series, what I am interested in conveying is ecological notions of adaptation, regeneration, conflict, mutation, growth, destruction, decay, and that they are also notions that find their equivalence in human experiences.
