I am an American artist best known for producing one-of-a-kind works of art utilizing organic materials including leaves, copper, stone, paper, and natural dyes. The hues, forms, textures, and patterns of nature are portrayed in my artwork. The surroundings’ natural beauty inspires me. I find peace and joy while I’m out walking in the woods. My spiritual sanctuary and link to all of life is the woods. And I believe that utilizing my hands and natural materials to create anything ties me to all of humanity, both past and present. My spirituality and connection to nature is shown through my art. They serve as a reminder that we are all one and have a common origin. We are the globe because hand and hand are one.
