"As with many artists, I find that the natural world
provides a rich, diverse palette of inspiration.  'Seeing,'
in the true sense of the word, not only means using
yours senses, but also your intellect and emotions to
discover the remarkable world around us.  My
series is based on a vivid childhood impression of
skeletonized leaves by beetles, some left with only the
leaf's veins intact.  I took a conceptual leap in
transforming this vague, distant memory into the
creation of a piece that, in abstraction, communicates
a fascinating aspect of the natural world.  That
conceptual leap, and the challenges of the physical
process to achieve the desired effect, are very satisfying."
