There are so many random moments in time yearning to be recorded as art, and then assembled through a series of drawings and/ or photographs. The moments become images, then ideas happen so individual pieces blend together to make an imaginative composition to create a journey into the whimsical. My drawings and paintings are intended to take the viewer away into a dream filled with color and light.
My work begins with a walk in the woods and a discovery of images found in nature. I photograph, draw and combine images, then compose each to emphasize light, shadow, color, and movement. I use colored pencils, acrylic paint, ink, watercolor, gouache, and a combination of any of these materials to combine images into a final fantastical, playful re-creation.
