I’m a color pencil artist that paints with pencil.  My botanical renderings are not drawings of plant specimens as seen in scientific books, rather, they are renderings of plants as seen through the eye of an artist.  I can look at the ground and I can see the shapes, light and shadows.

I typically focus on a small portion and enhance what makes that interesting.  Whether that be the individual leaf, flower, a branch or the ground, I bring the details to life.

I want the viewer to look and get lost in the scene as if they were standing in it.

I have found that life truly is, in the details.
