April in Oak Grove is mating season
Dandelion in Blue
I went for the fritillaries, and came back with all these, from Laura and David's garden in Portland.
Dogwood and Artichoke
From David and Bob's garden in Oak Grove. 2015. I love the spectacular scale imposed by the tiny artichoke.
Magnolia and Snowbelles
Imagine this piece at 50"x70". From Dave and Bob's garden in Oak Grove.
A busy still life with a bee attacking a beetle, a wasp pollinating, and a colorful beetle not really from around here.

"Other Things That Might Happen During the Eclipse". Detail of large still life photograph (40"x56"). From a day when the rest of Oregon was looking at the sky, the grasshoppers and the green beans were still doing their thing.
With dandelions, columbine, forget-me-nots, and a cabbage moth. Lush spring day.
Cabbage Moth with Bleeding Hearts
Two collectors have chosen this in 34"x46", one to grace her entrance so that it is first thing she sees upon entering her home, and the other in her bedroom so that it is the first thing she sees upon waking. I do love this piece.
Tulip and Hellebore
Maple with Tulips
Blueberries and Ferns
Delphinium and Rue (with Sarasota Bee)

This was the first piece that I printed in large scale, 34"x46", in 2013, and it blew me away. The details! I could see things in the print I could never see in real life. Fantastic. All from our backyard in Oak Grove.

Lilacs and Oak
Recipient of Juror's Award, "All Around Oregon" at the Arts Center, Corvallis, Oregon.
floral still life photographs
Still life photographs from "Flora", solo exhibition 2017
My editioned works are available as archival pigment prints on paper, or as dye sublimation prints on aluminum. The pigment prints require framing, along with matting or using spacers to ensure that glass doesn't touch the surface of the photograph. Aluminum prints are a good option for large works that become heavy when coupled with glass and frames, as they require neither, and have a rather luminuous look to my floral images.
