For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by the intricacies of the small natural world.
Admiring the detailed mechanics of small, beautifully designed objects makes me feel contented and peaceful-- a feeling that I often try to incorporate into the paintings themselves. My paintings tend to range from stylized to highly realistic, which I often compose in either oil or watercolor media.
