I come from a long line of berry pickers. Each year, members of my family would spend countless hours locating, picking and preserving different kinds of wild berries.

The Plant Tiles collection is a series of squares of meticulously arranged berries, seeds or thorns that were photographed in the dark using a do-it- yourself light wand. Instead of canning food, I created ‘digital preserves’ that can be used as raw material for future works.
