"Of Trees: Metalpoint Drawings"

As an artist working, frequently en plein air, in metalpoint, I have spent many hours drawing wonderful trees in different areas of the United States and Europe. This body of work reanges from ‘portraits’ of trees to studies of their bark or the structure of their wood as it decays. All these drawings are done with an underlying urgency of purpose as I use my art to try and advocate for awareness and good stewardship of the natural work around us.
