I am intrigued by the sculptural structure of the spent flower as it starts to abstract its own self.  My artwork evolves around spent plants for their individuality, unpredictability and asymmetrical contours.  From these notions, an interest in the physics of plants has developed.  The botanical structure, function and performance of the spent flower is observed with a microscope or macro lens.  Alongside the sculptures, the concept is portrayed through drawing, painting, printing or photography.  Overlapping subject boundaries in order to appreciate how, what and why the processes of the biosphere work has opened a creative expansion of my thinking.
