Taking inspiration from mold, fungus, and moss, these colourful blooms of ornament and pattern come to land on and obscure everyday objects, animals, machines, and even language itself.

Coming to enshroud objects both everyday and remarkable, these pattern blooms eliminate detail, surface, color, and texture of the original form, replacing the visual appearance of familiar objects with something alive, organic, and visually stunning. Like a careful manicured, miniature garden, the base objects become a foundation, the soil in which dedication, repetition, and a commitment to form, pattern, and colour grow.
