ARTIST STATEMENT

The ink tree sketches started during a residency in Odell park this past summer, shortly after I had moved back to New Brunswick, having lived in Italy for the past six years. I wanted to really explore the atmosphere of the park while I was there and I found the bold, twisting movements of some of the tree roots really fascinating. They created such beautifully unique and intricate shapes. And ink had just the right mix of drama and nostalgia to represent them.
