My natural pictures consist from recycled cardboad, onion skin and egg shell, paper and other natural elements. Each material used in this work has found other life. My mixed media recycle art work can broaden intellectual understanding, help engender an intuitive appreciation of the environment.
Believing in the power of ecological art, I work with a most basic concept of placing value on the floral collage, developing an art practice that is based in dialogue and social interaction. My goal is to deepen the connection between people and the natural world through my art. Busy in daily living we forget the beauty of life around us, the energy of being. Thoughts of desire fill our minds as we try to get what we want while we miss the roots of what sustains us, nature in all her forms.
Another wonderful thing about these collages is a game of light. Sunlight or artificial light. But it's an amazing sight to see the flitting shadows, their movement, radiance of materials. Perhaps you have never seen how many shades onion skin has. I just experimented and looked at my art from the both sides of the canvas. It is really stunning! Looking at them from different angles I wonder movement that going in your mind, because each new view this is a new picture.
