Artist's Statement

My art process runs the gamut of analog view camera to microscopic digital capture. Through these different processes I am able to magnify, document and abstract an unseen hidden world of complex forms, textures and bright vibrant colors. I am interested in how color, pattern, texture, and form of a living organism play a role in the natural selection process, an underlying silent code of visual signals. My work explores mating, camouflage, natural selection, seduction and the inevitability of decay.
