Origin of Love 

This is a book about motherhood, and the pure deep love a mother has for her child. I took inspiration for all of the illustrations from sitting by rivers. Water sustains all life on the earth, just as a mother’s love sustains the child until they are grown.

Growth 

This is a book about about the science and philosophy of plant propagation. With original photography, I sought to bring out the abstractness of plants and their highlight their otherworldly forms. 

Amass—the need for more 

Consumerism is unsustainable, because it is dependent on the consumer buying an ever-increasing amount, which eventually will not be possible forever. The last part of the book proposes another way to live, that is more in harmony with the world around us.
