Nature is my biggest and most consistent inspiration. Whether the subject is a landscape, a branch, or a group of trees, my paintings and collages are my attempts to describe and capture the ephemeral beauty that I find outdoors. The results are usually somewhere between direct representation and abstraction, transforming trees, for example, into pattern, color, light and texture. I use color and shape to try to communicate some of the mystery and beauty that I see in the shifting moods and landscapes of the natural world: nature can be lush or sparse, sinister or comforting. Regardless, I strive to make something that will hopefully draw the viewer in, and create a moment of connection with the natural world.

Biography
I come from a science background, but have always had an artistic side. That interest has led me to take a variety of workshops in different media (drawing, watercolor, glass making) whenever I could, over the years. When I moved to Knoxville in 2015, I was finally able to focus on my art full-time. I studied with the Open College of the Arts (based in the United Kingdom) for two years, and began painting with acrylics. Although I also draw upon the knowledge I’ve gained in other areas, acrylics have become my medium of choice. I enjoy experimenting with different colors, techniques, and materials, creating layers and textures in my work.
