“I paint in a realistic though somewhat impressionistic style and the focus of most of my painting is on nature. I work in both watercolors and acrylics, and my preferred subjects are still life and landscapes. My work in photography has inspired me as an artist, and has allowed me to observe in great detail the wonderful design and beauty in nature.”
