"My newest images comment on the passage of time and the depth to be found in experience. My work brings me closer to nature: I grow the plants, often from seed, and then I watch them.
These pictures can be understood on a sensual, nonlinear level. I use memory, scale, and the physical world to encourage a non-verbal experience in the viewer.
The point is to access the subtle, emotional, perceptive aspect of our brains -- our innate intuition."
