Artist Statement

With my work, I try to evoke awareness in the viewer and draw attention to seemingly ordinary plants and natural science objects that are easily taken for granted. I explore different media, mainly working in silverpoint, graphite, watercolor, and colored pencil. The latter being my favorite medium at the moment. I love its translucency; layer upon layer creates either a watercolor effect or a work reminiscent of that done in oil. I consider life as a voyage and as my journey through the natural world continues, it will always be an inspiration for my work.
