My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
My paintings are a reflection of the impact
that the natural world has on me. I am inspired by color and texture. I
let the nature of the medium dictate the overall look of the piece. With
watercolors, I let the paint flow and race across the page… Acrylics
are funky and fun… Oils bring out the traditional, earthy qualities of
the pigments. Recently I have been experimenting with layering found
objects such as leaves, twigs, paper, feathers. I am fascinated by
texture & color
