“I am influenced by patterns in nature; positive and negative spaces created by nature’s elements (i.e., light, water).  By separating the background and foreground, the surface as well as the individual chips, I am able to manipulate the material to replicate these patterns and to emphasize a sense of depth.  Though my starting point is often a reference to nature and the real world, as the work progresses, the material, the position of the chips or even the lumberyard stamps influence the development of the image.  The material is a product of nature but its industrial quality works in opposition to the softness and beauty of nature’s ideal.”
