Being surrounded by nature has always been a source of inspiration and interpretation for me. Through my observations and photographs of the natural world while hiking in Bucks County and Pennsylvania State Parks, I am inspired by the layering of light, pattern, texture and color.

Back in the studio, I draw on my collected artifacts. These might include seedpods, leaves and other plant materials, as well as my own photographs, which recapture light, shadow, and memory. My process involves successive layers beginning with silkscreen printing, enhanced by drawing, painting, printing and experimental mark-making. Each layer magnifies, overlaps, obscures or otherwise enhances the layers that came before. Reimagining what I have experienced eventually results in an image that is no longer constrained by the elements of the natural world that inspired it.

Ultimately, I hope my work reflects the intricate beauty inherent in our everyday world.
