Recent works on paper focus on the structure of trees as living, muscular evidence of natural forces interacting, pressing their great forms simultaneously skyward and earthward.  In the chaos of branches, the interplay of sticks and sky, I find evidence of systemic patterns and metaphors of other natural systems, such as the cellular patterns that form our own bodies.

Some of these pieces are printed on two layers of various Asian papers and collaged with encaustic medium adding dimension, translucency and luminosity to the paper.
