Inspired by landscapes, wilderness, and environmental change, my work employs elemental forms and experiments with perception, patterns, randomness, and natural processes. I use various watercolor and acrylic techniques to abstract a place’s complexity | simplicity and to explore what it is we see, comprehend, and attach importance to, given constant flux.
