About

In my art, I strive to express each plant’s emotional beauty and distinctive character, along with its physical structure. By guiding your eye deep into the marvels of nature, I may be able to help you experience a vegetable or flower you’ve seen many times in entirely new ways. Or when something is unusual, maybe your curiosity will do a double-take: “What is that?”

To create each piece, I photograph the subject from many angles while it’s still fresh and vibrant. Then I set aside the photos and work with the plant in front of me, applying vivid watercolors to paper in many layers, as long as the object can hold out. Once a plant fades or wilts, the photos enable me to keep going. Each painting takes about 100 hours to complete.

    Making art provides me with enormous pleasure. I hope my work gives you the same sense of wonder, delight and grace – and that my paintings speak to you as eloquently as its subjects did to me.
