I am drawn to shapes and patterns in the natural world. I explore these visual patterns in gardens, in landscapes, and in the macro world of flowers, plants and nature. You can see them in Marvelling the Mushroom, Flowerography and Garden Explorations. They focus on the delicate beauty of the floral, garden and natural realm – in their petals, seeds, leaves, stems and bark, and in the compositional beauty of gardens.

I do the same in the urban world where I find abstract images in the scratches, bumps, and bruises in the environment. This is where peeling paint, rust and decay blossom into new forms to create the Urban Extractions Series and Whimsy in Rust.
