In 2020, I was chosen for a residency at Bernheim Forest and Arboretum. Due to the Covid pandemic, I did the entire project at home. The Bernheim curator decided to give me the six weeks in residency as a thank you and I was free to use the time as i wished. I decided to dedicate those weeks to learning a medium which I previously avoided, watercolor. It has taken many years for me to feel comfortable with this new body of work. I have been working plein air style and creating paintings as spontaneous reflections of nature. I found a good painting partner who I meet once a week at the Chicago Botanic gardens for a few hours of outdoor painting. This is a good contrast to my woodblock print practice which is deliberate and planned.
