New Year’s is our favorite holiday. A brand new year and a brand new excuse for exploring, playing and drawing.
2019 New Year Card
How a simple photo series to chronicle the year became a metaphor for the creative process.
The idea started with a back-lit image of a Japanese maple tree canopy glowing with fall colors in September, 2017. We decided to visit this tree every few months to capture the colors of the season and a year of budding, blooming, rising and falling. If I could stand in the same place each visit, I could document the tree’s stage at each season.

2013 New Year Card
The natural world is completely interconnected. The New Year is a great time to appreciate nature and our responsibility as stewards of its amazing resources.
And lunch is our favorite meal. We get so excited about gathering around the table, we end up taking pictures of our food and it quickly becomes another creative project.
