I explore two realms – the magic and wonder of plants and gardens in the natural world and the everyday decays in the urban environment.
In the Marvelling the Mushroom Series, I create macro landscapes and abstract images out of seemingly mundane things – mushrooms.
In the Garden Explorations Series, I capture a garden’s atmosphere, spirit, and beauty in evocative images that preserve garden memories. I seek out the essence of plants and gardens throughout the seasons looking to express the details, colour, texture, pattern, rhythm and form.
In the Urban Extractions Series, I find abstract images in ordinary places that people ignore and pass by each day – dumpsters with blisters from chemicals and rust, underpaintings and overpaintings of graffiti and street signs, peeling paint in commercial and suburban settings, abandoned machinery and cars…and more.
