Contact Artist


I am a nature based artist. My biggest influences are Karl Blossfeldt, Anna Atkins, the traditions of Wabisabi as well as botanical illustration.

I found a sense of serenity in transience exploring the beauty of fading leaves and flowers. The Japanese concept of Wabi Sabi influenced this work. I chose the botanical objects for a sort of translucence and quietness; when they no longer had a sort of flaming beauty, but that of depth and mystery. Some still have a sort of insistence such as the poplar leaf, but others draw you in to them.

From Karl Blossfeldt and Anna Atkins I learned the importance of simplicity in composition. This simplicity allows the viewer to appreciate the form and color of the natural artifact while the black background adds the impact of drama. Botanical illustration concentrates on information as well as beauty.
