I have always been interested in the surreal, the things that are just beyond our sight. As I draw, hidden figures come to the surface and reveal themselves. I never know what I will end up with, which makes each painting feel like a journey. I draw my inspiration from the natural world. She inspires, moves and surrounds me. I love the fine detail of pencil mixed with the translucent way watercolors move on the page. In my work I hope to spark a love for the natural world mixed with the mystery of the surreal.
