Nature and the structural patterns found therein have always had an effect on the way that I perceive the world around me. In my work I strive to reflect the multiplicity and originality found in the underlying order, unity, and cohesion that nature so boldly experiments with. Through a broad array of textural investigation, I seek to explore that which nature provides, in combination with that which my mind comprehends. By using different textures and forms I try to create an intermixture through which hidden implications emerge. It is the design of nature and the nature of that design that intrigues me.
