As I create I reflect on my past experiences in my childhood and my young adult life. Growing up I moved often do to my father being in the military. One of my biggest influences is the plant life that I have witnessed from the areas I have lived. Texas, Florida, Washington and Kansas. Each place so different from one another.

I create from everyday life. That can be the content or what I find in my everyday life.
