Botanical subjects are my inspiration. Capturing nature’s colors and textures is an immensely enjoyable endeavor. Over the last two years, I have explored the wonderful medium of egg tempera which allows for great precision and a soft glowing finish to the painting. After working with watercolor and gouache for many years, the transition to egg tempera was challenging, yet incredibly rewarding. The beautiful effects that one can achieve with this medium is what I strive for in each painting.
