In my art, I celebrate the beauty of nature. My work focuses on the patterns and systems of plants and fungi to bring attention to their often overlooked complexity. By showing the inner workings of plants and their relationships, I can help nature have a voice. In making my artwork both functional and educational, the viewer becomes engaged. I think that understanding is the base of all appreciation and so by making informative art I hope to create more mindful viewers. In finding the beauty of the everyday, we develop a stronger appreciation for all that is living.
