About the artist

There are two schools in the colored pencil art world - those who hide their marks (works like this often look like an oil painting) and those who don't. I'm decidedly of the latter camp, I think there is something intimate about being able to see the marks the artist made.

My colored pencil drawings reflect my long fascination with Japanese art - both the calligraphy of mark-making and the tension between "flatness" and 3 dimensional forms.
