Through vibrant watercolor paintings I explore two- and three-dimensional space by juxtaposing multiple, flat planes with realistic, organic forms and man-made objects. 


My paintings begin with light pencil drawings of flat, detailed patterns and repeating decorative arrangements on 400 lb watercolor paper. On top of this I add three-dimensional bowls, plates, fruit, botanicals and other objects. As I paint I freely adjust the forms, composition and colors to shift the focus between foreground and background and heighten the impression of light and space. This results in the three-dimensional objects becoming more cohesive, and the abstract qualities of the patterns more prominent. The finished work is vivid and slightly off-balance, with non-static elements that seem to move between multiple planes of view.
