“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”– Henry David Thoreau
That quote sums up the inspiration for my botanical illustrations. I look closely
at a flower, a fruit, a leaf, paying close attention to the beauty revealed in the
hidden details of our natural world. Using colored pencils, I interpret that beauty
on paper in my own way, bringing me closer to my love of nature in all its forms.
All my collages are made with cut colored paper. I love working with paper
and scissors, creating shapes, shifting them around and arranging them in
exciting ways. My inspiration comes from Henri Matisse, Ivan Chermayeff,
and Kurt Schwitters.
All works are for sale, printed digitally with archival inks on heavy weight,
acid-free paper called giclees.
