Natures palette offers a range of wild intensity to subdued tranquility. I am attentive to the environment and landscape, finding artistic inspiration, meditation, and structure in the impressionistic patterns that exist in the natural world. I am currently focused on painting expressive landscapes. Encaustic, soft pastel, and watercolor are my primary mediums of choice. I also love experimenting with new combinations using traditional and non-traditional materials. Pure, lush color meshed with organic shapes and form allows me to create visual energy on a flat surface.
