My work is watercolor on paper -- yet rather than pursue the traditional way of using this delicate, fragile media, I am exploring and pushing the broader possibilities to break expectations of what watercolor can reveal and to create strong statements.
Many of my pieces focus on classic, European architecture. I am captivated by not only the beauty, but by all the human conditions that echo in these buildings. Perhaps because of my experience as an architectural renderer, I know firsthand how even the smallest details reflect the skill, knowledge, emotions and physical energies of the people who gave their lives to bring these creations into being. My artistic challenge is to push myself to go deeper than a mere physical representation. I seek to reveal the human struggle and potential that contribute to the unique stories within each structure.
