    Artist Statement

    "One of the pleasures of close-up photography is that it makes you slow down and notice the small worlds around you. I spied this pattern on a broad, fleshy agave leaf at Boyce Thompson Arboretum in Arizona. It reminded me of a drawing of a face in the style of Pablo Picasso, with ears, eyes, nose, and lips delineated by one continuous stroke. The image was taken with a Nikon D-7000 and a 105 mm macro lens."
