Find Me On:
In nature I find freedom of expression. I am influenced by the juxtaposition of urbanization and the bio-diversities in plants and wildlife. I utilize techniques from indigenous peoples who have created paints and dyes using plants, lichen and fungi for centuries. Incorporating eco-printing techniques, using heat to draw out the tannins or natural pigment add an unexpected quality to my work. Copper and iron are combined with these disparate elements in order to express my desire to harmonize the natural world with our ever increasing urban way of life.
