My practice has always been informed and inspired by the study of natural phenomena and its subjective impact on our emotions. In recent years my work has become increasingly concerned with the underlying principles determining growth and the forms it produces. Geometry is the theme on which nature plays her infinite variations, fundamental mathematical principle become a kind of pattern book from which nature constructs the most complex and sophisticated structures.
