I am an artist with a background in watercolor and acrylic painting who has been recently expanding into etching, pastels, and color pencil; with a strong emphasis on etching. I seek to produce aesthetically pleasing work with a focus on nature, landscapes, and figures. I have developed a profound interest and appreciation for etching and the many processes involved. I find working with etchings to be meditative and relaxing. I make editions and monoprints using the techniques of soft ground, hard ground, aquatint, and sugar lift. My recent works in watercolor are fun and uplifting landscapes and scenes that are somewhat illustrative. And my recent works in pastels and color pencil have been focused primarily on the examination of still life.
