Primarily a printmaker, Stephanie Jane Rampton has made trees and landscapes the subject of her work for many years. The drawings in this show evolved from sketches and photographs that have been the inspiration for prints. One major difference, however, from Stephanie's preferred medium of printmaking is that these drawings each represent a level of detail impossible to transfer to the plate and printing press.

Stephanie is intrigued by texture of undergrowth, fallen branches, twigs, leaves and rocks; the way in which branches are entwined; the mystery of what is hidden down a forest path.

Limited edition giclee prints of several of the drawings are also available.
