Drawings

2000 – 2012

The 19th century English poet and critic John Ruskin described a divide between imagination and reason that diminishes our comprehension of the world. He wrote of “the broken harmonies of fact and fancy, thought and feeling, and truth and faith.”

I agree that a complete appreciation of nature requires us to interweave reasoning with imagination. My drawings are the observations of a naturalist working at the intersection of fable and fact.
