My forms are simple and quiet so that I can use surfaces as a canvas for both stylized nods to nature and happy doodles. I love to make table lamps and to go through my paper collection to find the just the right colorway and texture for each lampshade. Sometimes, I will find a paper that I love and that paper will inform the piece. I am in awe of the beauty and diversity of flowers and inspired by an array of images from botanical illustrations to garden photographs to Georgia O‚ÄôKeefe macro paintings.
Beauty gives our souls a little refreshment so we can get on with the more mundane tasks of life.
