I love the use of vibrant color and line work in my art, and you will see these dominant elements of design in most of my pieces. I hope to capture the energy and joy of a subject and not just the photo representation. I enjoy experimenting with new colors and textures and breaking away from the norm. In my abstract pieces, I encourage viewers to find their own imagery and interpretation within the piece. I use all types of water media in my art, and since 2014 and moving to Santa Cruz, I have enjoyed working with Encaustic and creating new and exciting pieces with this medium.
