California native plant studies

Studying my hyper-local ecology and ecosystems through California native plants. These paintings are individual portraits of the plants as if to say “nice to meet you!”.


“Let them illuminate the lands”

A study on micro and macro perspective.

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.

– Isaiah 9:2


“Wilder still”

An exhibition discovering what it means to be wild in an urban environment.

Wild the hedge grows, wild the spring, wild the yellow hammers sing, wild the roaring of the sea, wilder still the blood in me.

– Colin McCahon
