Nothing endures but change.
This body of work deals with the transitory nature of existence. I draw inspiration from the complexity of nature, especially subject matter that embodies the duality of growth and decay, such as mushrooms and lunar phases. The cyclical nature of the moon alludes to the repeating cycles of time and the degradation and regeneration of all living things. The repeating patterns perceivable in the natural world signal the certainty of change.
