As a printmaker, my work primarily focuses on the simple comfort of nature’s intricacies. This work is an exploration of how I view the world and my place within it. The natural world is full of so much information and small gifts. My hope is that by taking the time to explore these moments, I can offer solace in an often chaotic existence. Currently, my artistic practice is influenced by Chinese flower-and-bird paintings, which depict the beauty of nature. These paintings often convey symbolic meanings. They reflect a yearning for happiness and harmony. Nature, weeds, and wildflowers have a strong vitality, and the of the blooming of life is one of the things I most admire about this world.
