I have a passion for art, photography, nature and science. Through construction, deconstruction, light and shadows, I use plants, flowers and nature as my muse and models.
Each petal, leaf and stem is hand placed and photographed in a studio or shot in its natural setting with a portable studio set-up. Some pieces form from an existing idea I have, a message I wish to convey. Some pieces sprout from ideas that come from the process of working with and examining the subjects. And there are some pieces that stand as simply documentation of the way I see the subject.
I find comfort in creation. There is a sort of ascension that takes place while creating and examining creation, where everything seems so simple and understandable. Where the trivial truly becomes just that. It’s an active meditation of sorts. In this, an appreciation emerges.
