Graphic Design: Real pressed flowers, encausticwax
Mixed Media: Botanical collage
Other Media: Organic mixed media



I am a mixed-media artist working with real flowers, leaves and other natural materials. I deconstruct natures' elements and position them in large presses to reshape and dry. The organic materials are then mounted into imagined forms with each layer hand-colored and suspended in thin layers of encaustic wax. The wax and hand-coloring are my newest technical developments, and provide protection and preservation to stand the test of time. My artwork is described as botanical collage - a fresh, unique and modern look with a designers' sensibility.

By interacting with natural elements and creating artworks, my aim is to capture fleeting moments in time. A flirtatious wink, a serious question, a curious observation, a thrilling adventure, a heartbreaking loss, a gut-busting laugh..."Stories of human nature expressed through nature itself."
