"At the core of each of my pieces is the intersection of self, community and nature with an intense focus on sustainability. My heart and mind is captured by different colors, textures, and secret details found in nature’s bounty. My work is founded in these elements and seeks to showcase what may otherwise be overlooked or swept away.
I am currently studying the 'Moment of Now' through a series of floral art and photography studies. I photograph and video my work and nature to capture different elements of beauty in the moment. If the piece contains live materials, they may dry in place, saved for use in a subsequent piece, or donated. Many pieces contain a combination of dried material, newly cut material, and material in growth or blooming stage, which represent the past, present and future."
