Artist Reception: April 5 // 5-8pm


This series of work is an experimentation. 

A playful combination of materials, textures and colors. 

All inspired by the land surrounding me.

Created with materials I’ve used before.

Created with materials I’ve never used.

Capturing the feeling of being among the garden, watching the seeds turn to plants, turn to flowers, turn to fruit. 

Capturing the colors of the first ripe tomato, the grapes on the vine, the flesh of a peach. 

Exploring the beauty around me.
