I create detailed visual environments that consider the complex relationships between humans, nature, and the cosmos. Through painting, I explore the worlds of tiny cells, flowering botanicals, aquatic species, and celestial bodies. Moving between the real and imagined, my work brings together microscopic and telescopic views. I position hybrid floral/faunal forms within a space that simultaneously evoke the deep sea and the cosmos. By creating associations between things that are seemingly disparate, such as particles and stars, my work presents a question or sparks a curiosity about the universe. In this way, my art suggests a sense of our place within the natural world and creates wonder.
