Watercolor, white-line woodcuts, and pastels

About the Artist

I create luminous watercolor and white-line woodcut portraits that highlight what is unique and beautiful about the amazing flora and fauna that surrounds us. My work combines a diverse background in fine art painting, graphic design, printmaking, and illustration with my interest in examining each living thing to see how it fits into its habitat and the world at large. There is so much in our world that is fleeting and my work strives to capture what I can before it fades from our view. The transitory nature of watercolor works well to capture both my artistic method and my subject matter, as they are delicately fragile and all the more beautiful because of it.
