My Artist’s Statement
I carefully plan each composition to highlight the natural elegance found within botanical subjects. When looking at plants, I search for clean shapes and refined details. The infinite arrangements of pure color and light within plants serve as my constant inspiration. Using predominantly watercolor on paper, my painting style is influenced by traditional English botanical art as well as modern minimalist composition. Through my finished pieces, I seek to send calm and peace to the viewer by presenting the poised perfection of nature.
I started out my art education experience in 1990 as an fine art major. I now hold a Master of Education and work in educational administration. Art continues to be a driving force in my life and I keep many projects and commissions going while working full-time at my day job. My studio is located in my home in Georgetown, Texas.
