Every piece is unique and starts with observing little things, little processes, in large landscapes. I live next to one of the largest urban parks in the country, and long walks in these urban wilds is what both sustains and challenges me. My work is both an exploration and a meditation of wild nature in the city; I immortalize seeds of invasive plants, putting them in a different context: I pull apart flowers and reconstruct their parts in a new anatomy. I want to infuse each piece with my own creative style while bringing attention to the unspeakable beauty of natural forms, which all of us overlook or take for granted.
