T R O P I C A L I A : drawing the rainforest

For years I have forged every sea creature imaginable out of metal.  Every squid, blowfish, jellyfish, and octopus have been reimagined in my sketchbook and later created in silver and gold.

Lately, my surroundings have taken me in a different direction.  Florida’s subtropical landscape has seeped into my subconscious.  I am surrounded by bananas, plumeria, succulents, mangoes, and palms.  Lush foliage forms are starting to appear in my drawings and metalwork.  It’s an exciting time for me, I feel like I am on a new voyage of discovery, new forms and lines are springing from the end of my pencil.

 

I have to say, I’m looking forward to working in my studio today!
