Nature Watercolors Mixed Media Abstracts Digital Photo Montage
Nature is my primary source of inspiration and color my principal mode of expression.I love to combine art and science in natural history watercolors. I can’t imagine more beautiful and bizarre subjects than actual species found in nature.
My abstract paintings are guided by internal intuition. I employ multiple layers to suggest interacting energies, dimensions, and the cosmos.
I create surreal fantasy scenes (in Photoshop) using bits of my photos and digital artwork. The techniques and possibilities are endless, so each one takes approximately forever! Creating these pieces feels like telling a story or fairytale without words.
My paintings, ranging from scientific realism to complete abstraction, have been published as book covers, book illustrations, stickers, cards, prints, and calendars. I am an Artist Member of Marin MOCA, a Signature Member of Marin Society of Artists and President of Golden Gate/Marin Artists.
