Watercolor Artist

I am an artist and designer, specializing in watercolor painting as well as pen and ink illustration. My subjects are generally organic in nature, as I prefer animals, plants, and landscapes. I believe one of the greatest aspects of art, is its ability to share perspective and to form a connection with the viewer. I would like to share with you my love of the natural world and the beauty that inspires my work.
