All of my art is inspired by the natural world. I find the multitudes of textures and patterns in all forms of nature soothing to the soul, with contemplation thereof akin to meditation for me. It is this calming effect that I strive to capture in my art. My process begins with drawings, photographs, or even direct plant prints of forms that appeal to me. Working from these source materials, I select parts to represent the whole. This reductive process allows me to create areas of focus along with areas of rest: the empty spaces. In this way I orchestrate a visual experience that includes "quiet" spots within the work allowing the eye and mind a space to rest. As the art is developed and produced I strive to create work that is both approachable and yet reserves mysteries for further exploration.
