Recently, however, I have also been drawn to birds, which has led to an interesting comparison and contrast of all these subject matters. In many ways, birds symbolize the opposite traits of trees and the ocean. While trees and the ocean are majestic and represent strength, stability and growth (they are grounded in nature), birds are light, delicate and epitomize freedom (and are mobile in nature). Together, they create balance: the bird is the weightlessness to the earth's weight, the yin to the yang. Likewise, I feel that the addition of the bird series is bringing balance to my body of work, and I am excited and reinvigorated by the process.
"If you observe nature closely, there's a dance in every tree, a song by every bird, and a story behind each ocean wave - countless gestures and poses in nature's landscape; ever-changing yet timeless - inspiring me to capture these moments through painting."
