Floral Montage

My work as an artist has always been drawn to the abstract and surreal.  Much of my earliest work was in watercolor and collage with a stylistic foundation in surrealism, my earliest work as a (film) photographer attempted to capture the abstract nature of what I saw.  I have always been fascinated by the diversity in form, color, and structure of plants and flowers.  When I began photographing flowers and plants using portrait lighting techniques it was an attempt to bring out the individual uniqueness in each of my “subjects”.  The “Floral Montages” are a natural extension of my “Portraits Botanical”
