"If you love it, you should have it."

Artist John Kraft

The goal of my work is to make people happy. As it relates to process, I first apply solid or transparent color-washes to custom made baltic birch wood panels. I then hand cut archival paper featuring flowers from paintings and illustrations that I've created over the last 20 years. I use the resulting shapes to create surreal floral compositions. This gives the illusion of a garden within a garden, hence the name of the collection; Secret Gardens
