My work is inspired by my love of nature, travel, and the beauty I find in everyday objects.
Primarily a colored pencil artist, I have enjoyed extending my artistry into other mediums. For the past several years I have enjoyed East Asian brush painting. I like the contrast between the very slow process of creating a colored pencil painting layer upon layer and the spontaneity of brush painting where I try to convey the essence of a subject by using minimal strokes of ink and watercolor. My latest journey has been into the world of alcohol ink painting.
