Micro Botanicals

Using a muted color palette and an array of textures and materials, the artful explorations in this body of work seek to unravel the mysteries of plant structures. Using micrographs as my reference material, I am inspired by the complexity of botanical structures as seen through a microscope and particularly of seeds, which seem expertly and intricately designed to exemplify the beauty, resilience, and awe-inspiring process that is growth and life expressed at various stages.
