“(S)he winged away on a wildgoup’s chase across the kathartic ocean and made synthetic ink and sensitive paper for h(er) own end out of h(er) wit’s waste.”

James Joyce (1882–1941), Finnegans Wake

Observational studies of nature and landscapes are central to my practice. Since we moved to Phantom Lake in Bellevue 11 years ago, I have painted my wetlands surroundings, especially the birds. It’s a privilege to live in the wetlands. Smaller birds fall prey to other predators or are misled by window reflections and become the subjects of my drawings or paintings. Most recently I began to study the winged insects, too. They are beautiful and fascinating creatures with the benefit of having 2 perspectives-their view from the ground and their view while aloft.

My medium is usually watercolor and acrylic ink although I paint more like an oil painter than a watercolorist. For this series, I collected unfinished tile, porcelain and concrete tiles from a salvage yard in Seattle to use for my insect paintings while others are painted on clayboard.
