Silverpoint drawing of a red squirrel caught in the moment as she plots her next raid on the bird feeder. The details of the animal are drawn in silverpoint. The background is loosely rendered in liquid charcoal, splattered and sprayed and dabbled with my fingers.  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.
