Artist Statement:


    Asa frequent traveler, I used to purchase small souvenirs as mementos. When the accumulation of stuff became overwhelming, I decided to stop buying things and capture an image that I would take home and use in digital image explorations. This has proven to be an interesting and fun exercise, and it extends the enjoyment of my travels. While manipulating a scan of an actual sea grape leaf from Miami, a landscape began to form and the notion of trees and leaves making up a landscape became a metaphor for the composition. The word endogenous means “developing inside the cell or body,” and the composition suggests this organic process.
