In line with my one of a kind artwork, I choose nature as an analogous subject as all elements of nature are unique. With no two leaves, trees, flowers, or other natural elements ever being exactly alike, I bring to light the intricate textures and details of my subjects, giving attention and appreciation to every aspect through careful arrangement and layering. I deepen the illustration of exceptional nature at times by combining disparate elements, for example, carnations on aspen branches. I use nature as a catalyst to explore concepts of life and health. Nature exhibits a transitory beauty, an ephemeral symbol of the cycle of life that engages the Earth as a living medium, reminding viewers that life is meaningful, temporary, and sacred.
