January 2014 Artist of the Month
About the Artist:
While my art is of various subjects including smoke and landscapes, my passion is flowers. I am fascinated with the myriad shapes; the different colors and combinations of color; the textures; and the play of light and shadow on the curves and petals. I use close-ups to capture the delicacy, inner beauty, and intimate details that are not often seen by most casual observers.
In addition I look for different ways to enhance the natural beauty of flowers. I create 2D acrylic and watercolor paintings and photograph natural patterns and textures (such as tree bark and aged stone) which I use as backgrounds in my work. Also, I incorporate the work of 3D artisans, pottery, ceramics, and tile.
I hope you can imagine the scents and sounds from each image. Enjoy!
