I'm a watercolor artist currently living and working in San Francisco. You can see my work in person around the Bay Area at craft fairs and gallery shows, as well as my daily progress here. My watercolor art ranges from painting series to product design to wedding suite illustrations to picture book illustrations to custom portraits.
 
     In my recent work I want to explore the relationship of light and dark, or good and evil, and how we perceive these ideas in our world. Our upbringing and past experiences place layers of context on us that construct our worldview. We wear these layers like clothing. The use of watercolor layers and cut paper garments express this metaphor. Whether stained and shameful or sturdy and protective, the layers of clothing we perceive ourselves to be wearing tell us who we are.
