“Thematically, flora and fauna play the starring roles in these quiet scenes and subtle dramas where color, pattern, evolution, and decay interact and unfold. Unexpected juxtapositions of the familiar and surreal create the opportunity for a story to unfold. My personal narrative behind the work is in some ways less important than the one you, the viewer, create. Each one of us brings a different set of experiences to the viewing that shift the plot in a new direction.” — Miranda Lake
