Nature of Pattern
The inter-relationships between all of nature’s corresponding parts create the true “pattern” of my work. Season after season I trace nature’s comforting repetition. My subjects change with the calendar, taking notice and making patterns of icicles one week and morels just a few weeks later. All things are equal: I am as captivated by the full and magnificent bloom of autumn color as I am to the existential challenges implicit in its fade and decay. My pattern-making forms a personal, arbitrary, asymmetrical time chart that is deeply resonant for me and my key to understanding what it means to be alive and of this world.
