Gorgeous work. Can't wait to frame it for my boys' room. This is why I love Etsy. Thank you, from Australia.
Getting to the Root of Things
As a kid growing up in an Ohio suburb, I so longed to see the world I would spin the teacher's globe and pretend I had been born in some exotic location like Chad, Egypt, or Sweden. After college, I finally became the globetrotter I so wished to be, living and studying in the Middle East and traveling throughout Europe. My path eventually led me to a job in Washington and a life of D.C. traffic, deadlines, and the gray walls of my cubicle.
Feeling trapped once again in life, I had to ask, is this all there is? That's when I took the plunge into this creative life.
I am now a full-time professional artist. My artistic influences range from Flemish and Dutch still life painters to Joseph Cornell and Wayne Thiebaud. I love to experiment with different mediums and I allow the image itself to choose the means of communication. My purpose is to get to the core and essence of life through my creative work.
... Hence the name, "Pith and Root."
