Statement: Fine details and textures intrigue me. Especially the luscious details from tiny, often overlooked forms. When one truly sees an object for the first time, the beauty that is found is inspiring. Through the process of stepping up to the page, I have learned to discover the beauty of both my external views and internal experiences, and am following my visual journey wherever it may take me.
