all my artthe “Fallen Leaves” collectionsee entire collection

My main source of inspiration are leaves that have fallen from the trees. More than a seasonal nuisance to be raked up and discarded, they are a deep and complex source of ideas and metaphor. There is so much character and mystery hidden in something so simple and overlooked. As the leaves age and dry, they continually reveal more to me, showing the internal structures and tensions that formed them. (See as slideshow.)
