Introduction

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 15, 2009, 9:28 PM
The exploration in my life experience of observation has awakened parts within me which I believe to be instinctual fantasies of nature. The theme of these artworks is this aspect of nature, exposed through myself into the work. I also believe that we are all able to find the fantasy of nature in our minds, and merge and develop it with our instincts and personal experiences into some visual essence of beauty.

Every shape is made up of a combination of simple lines and curves. Three dimensional objects have an infinite potential of directions for these lines and curves. Further applied, we see that all life and objects around us, such as thread, eggshells, feathers, branches, hair, and every texture, are all just a varied combination of lines and curves set into organized forms.

We are able to appreciate the essence of beauty in any kind of environment, when we see a certain familiar combination drawn from natural organization. When we find this essence, we spend vast amounts of time and effort to experience and absorb as many facets within it as possible, probing deeper beneath the initial layers to find what is secretly hidden inside.

Many of these objects, which we perceive and investigate, are actually very logical, tangible structures. Yet when we apply this point of view to the entire universe it becomes much more complicated, even abstract. It is through the meticulous detail in my art that I attempt to show objects that are often easily passed off and taken for granted as common day materials, and their infinite potential and uniqueness.
