Mixed media work on paper 

Atmosphere and continuity are big themes in all of my work. For the Tidal series, I drew on a palette of earthy pigments, vaporous veils of color, and delicate markings to create a sense of the fragility and strength of the natural world. As in nature, elements in the paintings replicate, change, fade, and return over and over.

As the series explores our dissolving natural world, I chose to work both with traditional watercolor paper and polypropylene yupo paper. Each surface allows different elements to emerge in the the work. The ink and pencil absorb on the cotton rag but hover and float on the synthetic surface.
