I'm interested in Fellenz Woods because of its dual quality of having the feeling of plains as well as woods. The delicacy and variety of grasses and vegetation inspires me as does the wind and trees. I work in series which are generally nature based and inspired by my surroundings in the present moment. The media develops out of the experience. I have a sense, after visiting Fellenz Woods, that etching and possibly video will be a part of this residency. I am currently making large scale graphite and ink drawings based on my daily walk to the studio and the trees along the way. They are large because I want the viewer to feel immersed in the drawing. The amount of work produced during this residency will depend on the size and type. During this residency I will be working from life, sketches and photos and would like to explore different times of day and seasons.
