I am inspired by the natural world of the landscape that surrounds us. Light, color, atmosphere and the manner in with we divide this space is my subject. The medium is acrylic.
I am a landscape watercolor artist. I do my drawings from photos and my imagination. I use controlled and uncontrolled washes, glazing techniques, lifting, masking, spraying, dry brush and wet on wet.
I use a layering technique that allows me to build up the oil paints for contrast and bright colors.
Heavy body acrylic paint on canvas, fine art reproduction prints on cotton rag paper with archival ink.
I alternate layers of colored pencil, ink, charcoal pencil, and graphite on Bristol board or hot-press watercolor board to create highly detailed, realistic yet contemporary portraits of wildlife.
Using watercolor/micron, I create minimalist drawings of origami animals, each finished with a little line of poetry. This series, now in it's second edition, seeks to obtain a bittersweet aesthetic.
Using a variety of techniques I create ink drawings/paintings completely from my imagination. I use technical pens for the line-work & brush on the color ink using brushes or natural materials.
My inspiration : the life and beauty in my gardens and woods. Draw first outside. Many layers of transparent watercolor applied w tiny brushes . Very Fine detail and rich color.My heart and soul
Watercolor on paper, and occasionally gouache and/or ink with watercolor on paper.
My work is a collection of drawings done with pencil, pen and ink on paper. Each drawing was inspired by different words, songs and phrases that were a springboard for the idea behind the piece.
