In 2004, I began making large-scale pastel drawings, and for the following two years tumultuous skies consumed my attention. Severe weather is at once captivating and destructive, beautiful and terrifying. These early works evoke both the turbulence and the tranquility found in the powerful forces of nature.
Perhaps my compositions offer a reminder of how small we are in light of our planet's potential (or, even more extremely, in light of the universe’s infinitude). Reflecting on this has always been therapeutic for me, and I hope the drawings offer viewers a similar experience.
