Since childhood, nature and animals have fed my soul so animals and birds are often the primary subjects of my paintings. I enjoy coming up with compositions that use multiple reference photos or placing an image in a “landscape” that is totally different from the one in the photo.
I am drawn to watercolor because of its transparency and layering effects that simply can be “magical”. I love to witness the pigments merge together creating various shades and intensities as I mix the colors directly on the paper. I take my time thinking about my palette and the properties and characteristics of each pigment to determine the mood or atmosphere I’m trying to capture.
