PechaKucha Tulsa Night 11

Living Arts of Tulsa 


PechaKucha is a presentation format of 20 slides at 20 seconds each about creative process. Below you will find my talk from April 2015 about a few pieces from my Scientific Introspective body of work.


Big. Small. Everything. We are surrounded by and interwoven with layered natural history. This complexity is my muse and never ceases to trigger new ideas for my art making. In this talk, I discuss the processes and inspirations for three artworks that appear to be vastly different, but stem from a common curiosity.
