Wren Den, 24x48 inches, mixed on canvas, 2013

The Carolina Wren is one of North Carolina's most treasured birds. In this painting, I've used acrylics paints, decorative and handmade papers, along with original stencils and drawings. My objective is for the viewer to wonder whether it is paint or paper. I strive to depict the process of metamorphosis and patterns of organic energy found in the natural world.
