The act of drawing is an homage to the wabi sabi of my woods whether with a singular fallen branch or a composition of intertwined vines and trees in situ. There is beauty in the interconnectedness and decay. Sometimes my lines are fluid and fast and other times there is a meditative quality to intentionally slowing down to capture opposing forces of movement and stillness.
