Various processes in nature, cause deterioration of natural and man-made materials. I am inspired and intrigued by the result. Using a camera macro lens, I capture images of mineral seepage and lichen growth on aging rock, or the peeling paint and rusting metal of old machinery. Highlighting the lines, textures, and colors that combine to bring character and interest to those images, I create vivid, abstract art, that showcases their amazing beauty, and intricate designs. I hope my work excites the viewer’s imagination and opens their eyes to what an incredible world surrounds us!
