I believe that all of nature is art. What is a linden leaf in autumn if not Nature’s painting? Unlikely colors combine perfectly in symmetrical design!My world is texture, color and shape – large forms and tiny details. How these all overlap is Nature’s artistry. My passion is to paint that world.
Watercolors are a natural medium for me. They allow me to capture the delicacy and femininity of flowers as well as the graceful curves and subtle color variations in leaves.
They invite me to layer color, changing textured hard rock surfaces to softer more accessible form. With my work on yupo, I love the process of ‘chasing’ and ‘taming’ the paint, coaxing it toward more predictability.
I also work with pastels, especially soft pastels. Velvety with intense color, they bring a richness and depth to my florals and landscapes that are both soft and strong.
