I create mixed media botanical artwork using primarily collage, acrylic, and colored pencil. Outdated and thrifted maps are frequently incorporated into my artwork, representing the journey of past into future. Words and poetry weave throughout, echoing letters and postcards sent and received from global travel. I am continuously fascinated with the meanings behind plants and flowers and place them as the focal point of my work. Combined, the elements tell a story of their own.
