Birds, Bees & botanicals

This year I found myself contemplating the everyday miracles of the natural world through drawing from observation. Collecting abandoned nests and seed pods has long been a habit and perhaps in response to a sense of chaos in the world at large, I have found great joy this year in observing and drawing the detail of insects, birds and plants. Working with the simple materials of charcoal, conte, pastels and paper and observing the minutia of what I have previously overlooked, ignored and taken for granted has been humbling and awe inspiring.
