My favorite media are watercolor, watercolor pencil, colored pencil, and ink. I love combining these, and sometimes add pastels and metallic inks. I like to add borders around the main image that tell their own story and experiment with drop shadows and different weights of black outline to create a stained glass look to the drawing.

I have recently started to experiment with alcohol ink and using only primary colors, white, and black to create a color palette for watercolor. I’d like to explore collage and texture. I also become fascinated with photographing close-ups of flowers and cats and whatever else will hold still. I experiment with cropping the images and altering the saturation and contrast. It’s like painting with photographs.
