The work in my portfolio uses expressive color to communicate ideas, emotions and narratives. Often these narratives are derived from an experience in which personal growth is achieved. It emphasizes the constant flux in life and nature and focuses on the joys and sorrows that transition can bring. The works frequently call attention to the beauty that lies in finishing details; highlighting intense, emotional color and minute elements helps to spark intrigue from the viewer. My watercolor pieces celebrate the versatility of color and how it can affect content.
