"My work begins with a fascination with nature combined with a love of pattern, decoration, and ornamentation. I morph nature with the decorative, creating an alternate “natural” world where flora, pattern, and a maximalist sensibility come together to create a new world characterized by symmetry, bold color and shimmering metallic detail that conjure a fantastical and idealized view of nature." -MO
