My 2D images consist of subjects and scenes from nature which are carefully constructed from my own photographs taken over the years. My favorite themes include birds, koi, bonsai, ikebana, and botanicals.

They are presented in a simple style which is influenced by traditional Japanese artists. In keeping with the subject matter and style, I print on a variety of Japanese papers and silks, carefully chosen to match the subject and interpretation. In some cases I apply the Momigami process of paper crinkling to give the works a textured and distressed look.All are intended to create inspiration and a connection with nature through peaceful, meditative, and serene works of art.
