I am curious about portraying in-betweens with my art. My current body of work is focused on the green spaces within cities, especially ones tucked away between pedestrian hubs. I explore these areas and document, with Plein-air sketches, what type of plants survive between homes or businesses, along with the surrounding architecture. I portray trees that are broken but still thriving, on discarded paper that has been formed into sculptural forms to mimic the contour shapes in-between the branches. These paintings and sculptures open up a conversation about urban growth and the diminishing native trees as well as offer metaphors for human survival.
