I am a color pencil artist that paints with the pencil.

My botanical renderings are not drawings of plant specimens as seen in scientific books, rather, they are renderings of plants as seen

through with the eye of an artist. I can look at the ground I can see the shapes, light and shadows. I do not draw the entire location. I focus on a small portion of the scene and what makes that interesting. Whether that be the individual leaf, flower, or snapshot of the ground I bring the details to life. In my drawings, I focus on achieving realism and try to put in as much detail as possible. I want the viewer to look and then get lost in the scene as if they were standing in it. I have found that life truly is, in the details.
