Biography:

The work is the product of a good stare – my eye creates the hierarchy of the image to tell the story. My hand follows my eye, repeating the visual journey through the site. These are places of entropic beauty – changing from a state of order to disorder and sometimes back. The focus is on the object and enough context is included to place the piece but the parts left out create an exciting puzzle for me and hopefully the viewer. It allows the viewer to experience my discoveries.

Watercolors create a tactile surface of color and light. The white of the paper becomes a part of the composition as negative space and puts the compositions in motion – many have a pivot point that moves the eye through the subject. Dramatic, low points of view hint at the monumentality of what is often hiding in plain sight.
