As an artist I am drawn to bold color, texture and contrast. It is the beauty of nature that fuels my creative spirit and my art reflects that.
My process is very untraditional. I use wax in a similar fashion to batik but I use rice paper and watercolor instead of fabric and dye. This is very exciting to me, with the many alternating layers of color and wax. Normally you would watch your painting come to life as you paint it, but with my work I have to trust my creative instincts until the end. When I remove all of the wax and see the final result, it is then that my vision is revealed.
