Mushroom on Parade:


These paintings represent a celebratory body of work honoring the mushroom.

My fascination with fungi began last spring when I stumbled upon an exquisite golden cluster of mushrooms near my Coosaw Island home.  I really had never seen anything like this before.  This experience opened up a whole new world for me as I began exploring the fields and woods looking for more.  Fascinated by their beauty and magical presence they became the source of inspiration for a new body of work and I began to paint my vision of them.   While reading more and more about them I realized that they were beautiful and incredibly significant to mankind.   Theirs was a kingdom so diverse and magnificent that I was in awe.  I felt humbled by their communal nature and wonderful spirit, all working together towards a common goal, to benefit man and the planet.

I have learned a lot and am learning more.  I tread softly now.
