Drawing Series 2018

This series is my most recent ink drawing series. In these works, I am considering how organic matter grows very fluidly, and how the shapes look like they belong together. My shapes reference modular patterns found in nature, creating organic forms that almost look like they’re growing. I like to look at shapes that are found only when someone is actively observing nature, especially patterns that often go unnoticed. Some types of natural life I look at include butterflies, caterpillars, barnacles, seashells, feathers, mussels, flower petals, reeds, and beetles.  Though these works remain in my sketchbook for now, I would like to make a large scale print of some or all of them in the future.
