When I paint I am drawn to portraits of women from past decades. I also love to paint dancers and circus acts because the lines are so strong and graceful. I generally use watercolors or alcohol inks in my paintings. I am drawn to how vibrant and dynamic these mediums can be. I tend to paint a lot of abstract backgrounds with beautiful and interesting layers of texture. I enjoy using interesting and different colors for the skin tones of my characters. Blues, pinks, and reds provide more interesting and whimsical characteristics for my people.
