I love to be outside, hiking, exploring, and creating art.
I love finding clay to dry in the sun then crush to mix with walnut oil. I stretch organic cotton canvas and use plant-based gesso (no horse hooves or rabbit skin). Climate Change can be about small changes, and I like that my art supplies are simple and clean.
I try to capture the energy and color in nature, often with a figurative quality. I love yoga and hiking, so I enjoy seeing the movement and flow of everything around me. I use natural impasto to add texture to my natural pigments, applying paint with palette knives and edges of a stone or stick.
