Pattern in the Forest – Phase 1 ·

My current body of work, Pattern in the Forest, is an exploration of place through process. The process begins with an examination of the pattern of color, light and texture within the forests of the Pacific Northwest through the practice of plein-air drawing. These drawings are used as a guide for fiber-based collages which subsequently form a blueprint for larger oil paintings. Each stage builds on the last, becoming increasingly more detailed and ultimately incorporates imagery that does not match reality, yet captures the original sense of place.
