Using real leaves, I sculpt the form using my proprietary medium – OmegaStone – creating an organic “canvas”. Pieces are painted and sealed. The result is a contemporary fossil sculpted in stone. My work is inspired by the forms of nature. From obtaining the leaves in exotic jungles and gardens to making and unveiling the finished piece (which sometimes is a complete surprise) the entire process is an adventure. My work honors the natural environment; my attitude is one of gratitude and reverence.
