“I enjoy trying new media and experimenting with the latest tools and equipment. Drawing and painting have always been my favorite ways to express myself. I enjoy working at home in my studio as well as regularly attending figure drawing sessions in the Seattle area. Most of my artwork is inspired by nature with a twist of creative observation and interpretation.”
