THICKETS COLLECTION - This series draws on the genre of landscape painting exploring themes of human need and interdependence.

The works depict not only an above ground view of colorful, abstracted objects reminiscent of plants and trees, but the complex network of interconnection below the surface, showing the intermingling of life forms that might otherwise appear independent.

This work was done during the COVID-19 pandemic, when our well-being was dependent on the behavior of strangers while we were simultaneously thrown into near constant contact with our immediate families. The pandemic highlighted our broad interdependence of the global community. I aspire to expose our intense human interdependency in these works.
