These are some images of objects in our natural world that have inspired me to create my work.  I do not strive to copy.  Rather, I try to emulate and incorporate different aspects of these objects into my pieces.  It is very interesting that so many different naturally occurring things have similar shapes in very different enviroments.  It is also curious to me how they often grow in like groupings and patterns.
Sea Urchins, Anemones and Coral

Cactus

Pollen Spores

Fruit and Seeds

Fungi
My favorite image because this one I found last spring.  If you don't know anything about Morels....this is a big one!
