These prints stem from the world of ecology, but toy heavily with the boundaries of academic discipline. I am indeed a product of scientific training, and I hope my artwork speaks ecological truth. But frankly, I also think science (yes, all of it) would much benefit from more attention to style.

In short, the Street Botany figures are inspired by the following:

a) the beauty and history of the Pacific Northwest
b) the botanical and ecological sciences
c) the patterns in nature, and
d) the sporadic workings of my brain

Please enjoy.
