I have always been fascinated with the negative/positive space and the movement of plants. This fascination has helped me to survive in an environment of domestic abuse. It has allowed me to find strength and recognize my determination to leave something bad and to reach for something good.
My work takes months to complete because I first disassemble the plant, photograph each piece with a variety of photographic methods and then reassemble the pieces together. The final image can have anywhere from up to 50 single images. With this process the distinct character of each plant species seem to breathe and move. They develop their own visual character.
