As both a scientist and an artist I have found the study of the natural world an endless source of fascination, wonder, joy, and horror. I love its indifference to life. This indifference is perhaps why so few people are willing to observe the "real" world, and why they are so willing to let it go. Robert Pyle calls this the "extinction of experience," for with the loss of experience comes the indifference to what happens to the natural world. These paintings are my "journal of experience."
"Art and Nature, like two Sisters, should always walk hand in hand, so that they may reciprocally aid and assist (each) other" George Edwards, circa 1743
