My inspiration stems from a relentless fascination with botany.  Or, more specifically and personally, my admiration for the countless plants I tend to year-round in my Southern California garden.  My taste runs the gamut from the succulents’ rigid symmetry to seemingly random arrangement of other plants’ foliage and flowers.  Sometimes the translation into my work is loose and almost subconscious, and at other times, I work directly with nature.
