Mix and Match

Artist Statement

I have a desire for my art to communicate the awe and wonder that I experience each time I really take the time to actually see nature around me.  

Flowers are my muse. There is so much symbolism attached to them. Even wilting ones have their own beauty and may represent the end of a cycle and the beginning of a new one. 

Paradoxically in the age of the internet, our  world appears to contract around us in an ever tighter bubble. We tend to experience everything through a tiny screen instead and are often consumed by the 24/7 hour news cycle, social media and celebrity culture. 

Flowers can be a reminder of the impermanence of life and serve as a prompt to stay grounded in the present moment.

My aspiration is for my work to elicit feelings of optimism, joy and abundance.
