My passion is 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 enjoy capturing the energy and joy of a subject and not just the photo representation. Watercolor is my primary medium but I also love to experiment with new mediums and textures, breaking away from the norm. In my abstract art, I encourage viewers to find their own imagery and interpretation within the pieces.
