Inspiration can come from anywhere at any time. Outdoor excursions are often the instigator of my creative process. I sketch, photograph, and collect objects from Nature. Sometimes, I surround myself with them for inspiration. Other times, I incorporate these objects into my work. Trips to the homeland of my parents Greece often inspire my work. The sea, or more specifically, marine creatures and other beauty of the deep-sea ecosystems that shelter them, are the basis of this work. These pieces are meant to investigate some of these forms.
