My studio effort is an intuitive meandering of pattern and repetition. I have an impulse to create hypnotic gesture, the imagery based in the surrounding natural world. My imagination reworks what I see and study. I breathe in the plants and air, the habits of animals close by, the tension of a world out of kilter, and breathe out these images and objects. Evocative of fabric patterns, some of the work is influenced by a love of historic surface design, and the rich history of botanical illustration. Present always is an underlying eye toward the subtle chaos of nature’s demise at the hand of human greed.
