|Original watercolor - 18"x25"
As an artist focusing primarily in realistic watercolor still-life paintings, I've
always appreciated the visually stimulating details that combining the objects of every day, with the uncommonly beautiful
aspects of nature, presents.
Watercolor is my chosen medium for it's clean and brilliant attributes, but the results I achieve as I work through the
challenges of watercolor with it's unforgiving temperament are what impassions me. Each painting I create pushes my abilities
to their limit, forcing me to stay ahead of complacency and discovering new techniques, while enjoying every breathtaking
minute. I thrive on accomplishing the level of detail I can coax from the medium, while still allowing the painterly effects
to shine through. Detail is my specialty, and I find still life arrangements of flowers, tapestries and reflective surfaces
offer an abundance of gorgeous textures to translate into my own unique watercolor signature.
