I have been making, finding, documenting, and sharing images my whole life.
The images that have been most important to me have always been of Nature (botany, landscape, zoology).
I have worked 35+ years in professional communications, and many of my important assignments have related to seeing -- and imagining for the future, Nature -- the thriving landscape. I have worked for municipal public spaces, for global forestry organizations, for historic preservation organizations, for world-class arts institutions -- all concerned with depictions, and the meaning, of images of the natural world.
Along with acquiring a Ph.D. in English Literature and an M.S. in Landscape Design, I have also studied botanical art at the New York Botanical Garden. and studied drawing and painting at Parsons School of Design and The Art Students League of New York. I am a member of the American Society of Botanical Artists.
Botanical art is NOT mauve painted violets on English tea china. Botanical art is the most meaningful (symbolic-laden) category of representational art from all world cultures. Botanical art is about structure, life, survival, architecture, sex organs and seduction, interspecies cooperation, communication -- and life. Botanical art is energetic, strong, and changes how you look at the world.
