Artist Statement My illustrations celebrate the ephemeral moments of life by framing the beauty and motion of the subject within the canvas and within its own emotional context. Working from real-life subjects, landscapes and images from my subconscious, the serene and the surreal merge as one. Utilizing photographs, I manually transform them into the haiku of art nouveau using gouache, ink and dry pigments, which are then digitally polished. Clean line-work dominates my figure drawings where white space speaks as loudly as the vivid colors that punctuate the rest of the piece. Major subjects include the female figure, fantasy and the fluidity of nature.
