My work explores nature's microcosms and macrocosms and how within each lies the other. A seed for example, holds the entire blueprint for a life, and represents the divine design within all things.

Part of a group exhibition at The Arts & Letters Club of Toronto during December 2020, Three Black Walnuts, explores our reverence for nature, while we simultaneously, and uncontrollably, consume it. Based on close-up drawings of walnuts that have been eaten and discarded by red squirrels, the image suggests both primordial prayer mandala, and symbol of brash, 21st Century corporate commodification.
