While serving in the Peace Corps (2006 to 2008) I wanted to continue making art by drawing the wonderful trees I was photographing. In order to be able to bring my work home with me at the end of service I had to devise a way to make large drawings portable! Thus the multiple sheets of paper which could be easily disassembled and packed up.

I like the presence that the large drawings bring to the viewer, the close-up view, causing the eye to examine texture and form and to feel an intimacy with the subject.  I continue working in this format with trees seen here and in different parts of the world.
