My investigations take the form of collages exploring the intimate physiological and emotional relationship between the human form and plant life. What interests me most is the way in which the human anatomy corresponds to structures in nature, plants, trees, and the landscape. This can manifest itself internally or externally in the form of patterns, designs, or metaphorical context—subtle-yet-enchanting similarities between the inner life of plants and trees and humans. What are humans if not plants and trees, themselves made-up of organic material?
