Artist’s Statement
Walking through a landscape, I am constantly attracted to the remains of the germination process found on the ground: seed pods, leaves, branches. Over years I have collected and stored them in an antique seed cabinet. Taking cues from the materials themselves, I combine them in such a way that you might question if they occurred naturally or were finessed. The process is organic, elements connect with each other and become distinct in their own right, intrinsically intimate, beautiful, haunting, humorous. I hope these pieces kindle an appreciation for the exquisite natural objects that surround us.
