ARTIST AND ILLUSTRATOR
Deterioration can be beautiful if seen through the eyes of another. Using watercolor, ink, liquid acrylic and resin I capture the feeling of things falling apart but remaining beautiful. Repetition of shapes inviting viewers to look at the whole image and not get lost in one section. My work is created with the feeling of urgency, never knowing if I may not be able to hold a brush one day. My work asks you to step back and absorb the whole image, not to get caught up in a small section. It is about the "the big picture."
