Artists Statement - Nature Collage Series

I photograph representations of seasons through arranging flora and other elements of nature from my property in Little Rock, Arkansas. I have strict standards for how the pieces and objects are arranged together in the photograph, and how they represent the moment in time. All of the flowers, rocks, feathers and other elements are collected from my property or nearby, and many are grown by my family. I am capturing the essence of nature in a season to enjoy later, and to work to evolve as a gardener.
