I've turned to working in the smaller, more intimate medium of color pencil drawing. I Like the way you can mold, blend, and manipulate the pencil to create a painterly effect. I enjoy the "made by hand" creative process. It is just me, the paper, and the pencils. My inspiration comes from nature, but my unique interest is focused on its infinite variety of colors, textures, and patterns. My drawings invite the viewer to stop a moment and explore the expressive, colorful recreation and incredible detail of what I see.
