Bilpin #7 (After the Rain)
2019
Gouache on watercolor paper
22 x 30 inches

This piece was a part of a series completed at the Bilpin International Ground for Creative Initiatives Artist Residency (BigCi) in Bilpin, New South Wales, Australia. The richness of the immediate surroundings of the Blue Mountains is combined with references to the Great Barrier Reef--both documented extensively while there. I was at the residency at the beginning of the most devastating fire season in Australia's history--the threat of this influenced the work significantly. Making a leap to combine these two vastly different ecosystems, I decided their co-habitation in the same pictorial space spoke to their need for each other--and their shared stress due to climate change.

Bilpin #6 (Monolith)

Gouache on watercolor paper

This image includes a burnt tree stump and bleached stag horn coral. In addition, the trees in the background have a pronounced eerie orange hue, due to the distortion of sunlight through smoke-filled air.

Bilpin #5 (Giant Clam)
2019
Gouache on watercolor paper
30 x 22 inches

This image includes Eucalypt trees from outside of my studio, combined with various marine creatures found at the Great Barrier Reef. The tree on the right is a "scribbly gum" tree, which gets its name from insects that burrow and create marks near the surface of the tree.

Gouache on watercolor paper
