This is a cyanotype using a photograph I took of a weed in the yard. I made a negative, then exposed on coated paper in the sun. The lettering was done after the piece was dry.

Weeds are so often overlooked, yet there is an exquisite beauty in their geometric architecture. The Mary Oliver quote worked well with the image.

I am originally from New York City, but now live in the Pacific Northwest. I have loved drawing since childhood, and my mother was a Shakespearean actor, so words were so important. My father also speaks over ten languages. I love words. I use many different mediums, such as watercolor, oils, inks, and alternative photo practices. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style. I try to merge the various skills I have into one new form.
