"This painting began when I picked up a butterfly wing from the Morpheo Menelaus butterfly. I was fascinated by the contrast between the bright electric iridescent blue and the earthy moth-like underside of the wing, two sides of the same creature. I was thinking about that and myself, silence vs chatter ... eccentric vs lethargic ...Original painting is painted with 50% naturally found pigments from the Peruvian Jungle."

“This work is exploring an inner landscape, observing the conflict between two belief systems. One that believes in magic and the ineffable, and the other that believes in logic and the quantifiable. Both systems meet on paper, as the unpredictable nature of watercolor flows through structure and logic. The materials reflect this synthesis with a combination of natural and synthetic colors. As our lives become increasingly structured around algorithms and numbers, I want to invite coincidence and handmade intention back in. Each painting finds a rhythm and balance
between those two worlds.”
