Body of work:
My work is about nature, from the tiny, seemingly insignificant branch to the
microcosm that makes up the world in which we live.
Geometries, golden mean,
the perfect circle representing infinity, the continual chain of elementary
process from rain to snow to ice and then back to rain, the four seasons that
parallel the change in the state of humanity, spring for the birth and rediscovery to
the winter where we commit to the long sleep before returning to spring.
That which we may perceive in nature as chaos, possesses order unseen by the untrained
eye and we must strive for balance in all things in nature and within ourselves.
The world around us displays subtle nuances in texture, color and shape, a never
ending journey of discovery to be explored and treasured. A rock found out in the
field may seem dull in comparison to a faceted diamond, but it too, has beauty,
it is merely waiting to be acted upon and given a new form.
I have always respected mother nature. This is my way of giving a concrete,
more permanent form to the transient beauty that makes up this world in hopes to
share it with others.
