One of my favorite things to do is visiting local and botanic gardens soaking in nature's array of brilliant color, intricate patterns and textures of flowers and greenery, scents and sounds. I just love flowers! Taking hundreds of photographs allows me to focus in on and be inspired by nature's abundant beauty. Luscious oil paint and delicate pastel, color and texture help express the essence of a subject.
When doing pet portraits I'm amazed to see the depth of their souls and character that manages to spring out of even a single photo for me to capture in my drawings. I love paper and try to use recycled, natural materials whenever possible.
