I love natural objects; specifically, flowers, seashells and gemstones/minerals. I also love the feelings of awe and discovery that I get as light passes directly through an object and highlights it's most brilliant, hidden colors. For me, it's almost like finding a jewel. I hope to perhaps convey those same feelings of discovery to you.
My paintings will generally be done in either acrylic paint or oil pastel. While I'm more confident while using the acrylics, I can't resist the feel and texture of the oil pastels. I chose these two mediums because, between the two, they satisfy my personal desire for balance and variety in the materials I work with.
