    This piece was created from a photograph I took on February 22, 2010.

    The ice-covered branches of the trees looked crystalline in the sunlight and the icicles glistened as if they were lit from inside.

    The pattern for this piece was a photograph I took of geranium sanguineum, a ground cover that grows in front of my house.

    The flowers only bloom for two to three weeks during late May and early June. They are a bright blue-magenta that looks fluorescent at certain times of the day. When I photograph them from an oblique angle, the strange color is more visible.

    October 24, 2009: Troy's Tree

    3.5 x 6 in.

    2010

    This piece memorializes a tree that once adorned the front lawn of my neighbor’s house. The beadwork was based on a photograph that I took October 24, 2009.

    The tree was cut down the next year; the fall has not been the same without its robust canopy shading our street.

    November 8, 2011: Rushton Red Maple

    3.75 x 4.5 in.

    2011

    For this piece I used a photograph of a tree that was across the parking lot from our school. It was one of those fall days when the sunlight made its leaves glow a bright orange.

    I focused in and selected an area of the photo where the color was most intense and used it as a pattern for this beaded picture.

    Underwater Scan incorporates an MRI image among other forms that refer to nervous system tissue.

    These cling in a rhythmic arrangement of underwater ferns, corals, and sea life.

    October 24, 2009: yellow leaves

    4.5 x 10 in.

    2010

    This piece was based on a photograph of a maple tree that I took October 24, 2009.

    Taken through a wide and short window, it is an attempt to document the glorious intensity of color in the sunlight passing through vividly colored leaves.
