Graphite Botanicals evolved from an interest in printing, and more particularly ,“frottage”. The materials allow me to capture the structure of plants with a precise subtle sensuality. The plant rubbings include maize, red oak, cabbage and chestnut leaves.
All works are framed. Medium: graphite and kozo paper. Dimensions from 20" x 20" to 42” x 29”, 2005
The Carbon series – graphite and charcoal - from the Las Conchas, NM fire are the pigments in these works. The process involves trailing my hand through the medium across a surface, leaving a trace of the movement.
Works are on paper and panel. Medium: graphite or charcoal and an oil medium. Dimensions from 7” x 10” to 29” x 25”, 2013
