I don’t always know immediately why I am drawn to something. Nature is beautiful. Life is beautiful. I like to try to capture this to remind us of the inherent beauty in life and in ourselves as human beings, no matter how small that beauty may be.
When I start a new piece and take it down to miniature size, I have to think what is the essence of this beautiful object I want to convey; what do I want you to see so that you can know that beauty too.
As a viewer, you go through a similar process, focusing on the object that is being portrayed and discovering what is beautiful for yourself.
I hope you enjoy the discovery as much as I do!
