Kelton Osborn

Several of my recent pieces have evolved from memories of my early childhood experiences visiting my father's Botany lab. I had many experiences viewing items under the microscope and "assisting" my dad preparing plant specimens utilizing the plant press.

 

Often times I would tag-along on field studies with the students, gathering plants and sketching. For me, this was my introduction to the lifelong process of discovery. I have managed to incorporate this method into my own form of research and exploration with my paintings and sculpture in this series.
