I create green art by using preserved plant material exclusively: thorns, seedpods, branches, entire plants, leaves - whatever seems compelling to me. I consistently find myself amazed at what visual pleasure results from a complex photosynthesis process that creates the air that we breathe. Everything in nature has a certain way it wants to be: manipulation of form isn�t effective. The only thing that works for me is to find it and allow it to be. Singular perfection of form is a misconception - everything is as beautiful as it is uniquely itself. The best I can offer nature is to give its shape a longer life through a scientifically sound preservation process. After time in the press, the plant material is removed as a different entity: form and color have been solidified and its potential as art is revealed. I use traditional botanist's low or no environmental impact preservation methods and conservation quality materials in the final pieces, which results in the long-term integrity of the art.
