I Quit My Boring Office Job To Start Making Mini Paintings On Recycled Wood

Growing up surrounded by trees, I’ve found a deep affinity for the life force present in the natural world. For years I worked long monotonous hours in the city, in front of a computer, and felt like I was contradicting my very existence. So, five months ago, I decided to make a change.

Today most of my time is spent making mini paintings and wood-burned pieces on recycled and free fallen wood. When there is no fallen branches from the trees around our house, I turn to my neighbors and community. Thankfully, there has not been a shortage on materials waiting to be re-purposed.

I love working small, it creates an intimate experience between myself and the natural world. I have learned to appreciate the process of crafting and have come to adore the unique quirks in nature, working to enhance its beauty, instead of forcing my own concepts.
