"Leonardo DaVinci once said that "simplicity is the ultimate sophistication". I have found great inspiration and purpose from observing the simple things in my daily surroundings - particularly those found in nature. My aim as an artist is to pay homage to these creations and to allow the viewer to connect in a new and deeper way to the subject." ~ Tyler Swain, Providence UT
