I paint and illustrate 2D art to transport the viewer. I use watercolor, acrylic, and natural materials (like twigs, twine, and thread) to create a feeling of dimension and texture in my ethereal images. I am inspired by the beauty of nature, the ever-changing sky, and the brilliance of flowers. My pieces are dramatic and ungrounded with colors that sometimes seem brighter than real life. Each painting is a realistic natural scene with an emotional tension. But, occasionally there is a touch of some unspecified magic.
