Through referenced vintage photography or modern day models, I transform my subject into a work of emotion and imagination. I use florals, wings, masks, and more to be symbolic of what all women desire from within. To be wise, strong, connected, worthy, and loved. And as an award winning watercolorist specializing in fairies who display the integrity of women in our world.
I personally struggle with what the world sees vs what I know within myself, and those around me. My work is a mirror reflecting what is longed to be seen on the outside from the inside. I hope to remind my viewers of how amazing we look to who first created us and the light we have to share.
When I paint in watercolor I have the freedom to create textures and color quickly, while keeping my detailed drawings focused and intact. I delight in exploring the mediumâ€™s behavior by combining salt, alcohol, splatter, drip, and glazing techniques on my paper. Spending hours glazing my subject, I refine them and their story, while keeping the environment moving and dreamlike.
