"What I used to call Nature goes beyond my framework. It encourages me to flow with all senses, soothing, calming, and nourishing. All plant tissues, urban and wild, distant from cities, are intriguing me during forest wanderings and morning walks through the neighborhood. Fragments of trees find me, so I collect and store them. I find in them and in myself the capacity for transformation, that expresses in the objects I create. I am looking for a balance between what is permanent and ephemeral."
