Botanical Sculpture, Painter, & Moss Artist
I am passionate about nature because in my moments alone in the deep woods, I feel peace like I can find nowhere else.
I have always been an artist since I was very young, experimenting with many mediums. But once I discovered using moss and natural elements in my sculpture work, something resonated deep in my soul that words fail to describe. I felt like I had discovered something sacred and ancient in how I related to the pieces. From then on, I decided I wanted my work to create sacred spaces so others could step into the same depth of what I was experiencing in my soul.
This world can be chaotic and heartbreaking, but I found a place in my artwork that brings the soul back to it’s true intended existence in a sacred and secret space that is deeper than this natural world.
There is something magical about using nature to create. I feel like I’m painting with creation as my medium in a co-laboring with the creator himself to make something new on the Earth together. In my work, I get to capture that moment of peace when I go for a walk in the woods alone where I can finally just breathe and every pressure of life fades away. I want everyone to experience that feeling of beautiful peace in the soul.
