ARTIST STATEMENT​​

My work gravitates toward realism, although I enjoy all forms of artistic expression and experimentation.

I most often work in Colored Pencil and Watercolor. Much like Watercolor, Colored Pencil is a transparent medium that allows for multiple layers to achieve complex, rich colors and values. Colored Pencil is unique in its additional ability to render detail, so is well suited for articulating realistic elements.

For me, working in realism is an opportunity to explore easily overlooked nuances in the world around me. The process of looking deeply and interpreting with each stroke gives me a profound sense of connection and gratitude for the wonders of even the simplest of objects.
