Artist Statement

Nature, like the artist, has an infinite number of ways of expressing itself. My work is driven by interest in creating a world that originates from specific, dynamic forms found universally in nature.

I am fascinated with creating experiences of extreme beauty and visual decadence in order to generate an overwhelming visual impact within our contemporary world. I use excess and opulence to explore the human experiences  when  confronted with truly unusual and incredible growths, patterns, and structures in the natural world. I  create abstract landscapes of microscopic and macroscopic scale that are developed organically based on ideas of circularity, regeneration, accumulation, and decay.
