Artist's Statement:
 FORMS AND SHAPES IN NATURE CONTINUE TO INSPIRE ME. I GO THROUGH UNCHARTERED PATHS AND FEEL GREAT JOY & SATISFACTION IN DISCOVERING DIFFERENT RESULTS: MYRIAD VARIATIONS OF COLOR AND CONTRASTING TEXTURES. I MOVE AWAY FROM INTERPRETING WHAT I SEE, CHALLENGED TO SEE WHAT I DO NOT SEE AND HOPE OTHERS DISCOVER THE SAME ASPECTS IN MY WORKS.
