Patterns & Hidden Details within NatuRE

 

This work is heavily inspired by natural subjects and the patterns that occur within them. I deconstruct natural forms, including plants, rocks, pebbles and seashells, and extract patterns from their forms and surfaces. I use these patterns to create colourful contemporary compositions that celebrate details that are so often overlooked in the world around us.
