DOWN TO EARTH

Portraits of the intricate organic forms bequeathed to the ground by nature. Lichen-embellished branches, seed pods and cones of all shapes and sizes, and an occasional feather adorn the earth that surrounds my home. Leaves and grasses blanket the paths I follow, both near and far from home. These portraits are meditations on the artistry of the invisible, the overlooked.
