The mangrove tree, found in South Florida’s coastal and brackish waters, is a wonder, twisting and turning into itself and nearby plants and trees. I printed the original photo onto archival drawing paper, then cut it into sections and mounted the pieces, with some elevated to emphasize the dynamics of the space. After mounting, I drew into the piece with colored pencil, graphite, and charcoal, to highlight shape, form, and shadow.
