I present scenes that merge various methods and media to depict highly staged visions of the natural world. The works hint at an amalgam of sources including plants, rocks, gates, and nests. I create fictive structures that reference architecture and ornament but also allude to natural forms. Primitive and technological constructions fuse into a framework engulfed by organic growth. I reach the final image when the natural and the synthetic combine and when these elements fluctuate between discord and harmony.
