The idea of confluence, the flowing together of two or more streams, has been present in much of my work as I have explored the juncture of the natural world and the human-made world in my photographs.

In the Confluence images I employ visual simplicity to convey the bones of the meeting of the natural world and the human-created world. These works are the joining of my vibrantly colored and richly detailed Florilegium botanical images with the more monochromatic, nonrepresentational forms of Illumitones. I believe that nature provides us ideal models of form and design from which to learn and draw inspiration, so this is a natural pairing.
