The aspect of ornament that interests me derives from a romantic view of nature and a search for visual pleasure. With botanical imagery as a reference, my recent work is an exploration of symmetry, pattern and balanced arrangement that only alludes to natural representation. The title of my link, Cultigen, refers to a deliberately modified natural plant form and reflects my study of the origins of ornamental designs and the reimagining of nature.
