I work in a variety of water-based media, including watercolor, gouache, ink & acrylics. My favorite surface is tea-toned paper and I favor the tiniest of teeny-tiny paintbrushes.
I suppose I am largely influenced by the vast forests and mountains of my childhood. There, where woodland creatures vastly outnumber human creatures, one's connection with the world is felt much differently than it is here, in the city.
The portraits and personalities that take shape under my pen and paintbrush evoke (in me, at least) a sense of nostalgia, not just of my youth, but of a commonality-- of universally shared emotional spaces and fondly remembered narratives.
