"Specimens" (2017-2018) are explorations of mark-making as a meditation. Using photographs of mineral specimens as a starting point, the artist alters them digitally before transferring them to wood panels and then drawing on them with acrylic paint. Echoes of previous work dealing with mineralogy, geology and pattern design reverberate throughout these shiny mixed-media pieces.
