Artwork is available for purchase and will be delivered or shipped after Broken Nature show at RTPI has closed. Silverpoint drawing of a great white egret in breeding plumage. The delicate details of the bird are drawn in soft silverpoint. The background is loosely rendered in liquid charcoal, splattered and sprayed to evoke the organic textures of the marsh.  Due to the nature of this medium, the silver will gradually tarnish and take on a warm patina.


As an environmentalist and visual storyteller working in western New York, my work is almost entirely informed by the woods and rural habitats around me. While this is constant, my love of trying new materials inspired me to explore metalpoint. This work is done in silverpoint, which is an old drawing method done by the masters including Rembrandt and Albrecht Dürer. I have the advantage of modern grounds and a premade stylus, but I think it still achieves an old-world look I admire in these historical drawings.
