    The Garden Suites

    Tim and Tracy have taken varied approaches to the subject of the garden.

    Tracy searches the unassuming environment around her home and selects and crops from it, painting intuitively to invent lyrically hued scenes that become serene, and arcadian.

    Tim draws from a tropical estate and its unnatural and abandoned architecture. His paintings form a traverse through this defunct fantasy where the lush vegetation and sultry sweltering atmosphere re-possess the land.
