The world is made up of artificial forms created by humans as well as forms created by nature.
Humans are instinctively drawn toward living a natural life.
However, life compels humans to live with intent and logic in order to navigate the world.
I use flower and chandelier motifs to convey the fragility, ruthlessness, and strength of the human heart, balancing both the natural and artificial.
When this balance of the natural and artificial can be struck in the heart and captured on canvas, I believe beauty comes to life.
