The graffiti botanical Daybreak is my expression of a garden waking up to the world—thus inspiring the title of this work. Daybreak combines graffiti with botanicals in the most unexpected approach. Butterflies, blooms and street art ephemera are re-imagined. All elements become individual drawings. Colors from decaying graffiti walls become my palette. Imagery is physically burnished into the surface of my substrates in multiple stages intertwined with acrylic, pigment ink and spray paint to form a composed work of art that is uniquely individual blending nature with the urban landscape.
