Peak's Island, Maine
This series of ink, pastel and china marker drawings records the delicate balance of the ad hoc rock sculptures that appear occasionally on the ocean side of the island.
The pinnacles exist as long as the ocean, atmosphere, gravity, or pinnacle-destroyers allow them to stay, eventually returning to their rock-strewn base, to be made anew.
