Fractals are found throughout nature; some examples include trees and river systems A river system follows a natural fractal pattern if you follow it upstream. The river splits into smaller rivers, and those split into even smaller rivers, and those split again even smaller. Fractals are self-similar, infinitely repeating patterns created using recursive math equations. I might be a computer geek, but I am at peace with nature. Within my work I try to recreate the natural world, often adding an other worldly twist. Math is often thought of as being very rigid, and while I can create some very rigid geometric fractals, I tend to be drawn to the more fluid and organic patterns. Because fractal patterns are found in nature, it is possible to use mathematic fractals to model natural fractals, which allows me to create some very organic feeling scenes. My goal is to inspire imagination while simultaneously helping people bridge the gap between math and nature.
