This piece was done with watercolors, guache, and subtle metallic paint. I am always drawn to things from nature and have been collecting rocks for years, I am fascinated with how they can become more abstract when looked closely upon. I wanted to recreate the inside of a geode rock, but to also reference other things, like a topographical map. I love the intricate layers of this type of rock and watercolors are a great way to illustrate that.
I am a Houston, TX based artist. My paintings revolve around themes of the mind and body, plants/nature, and expressive abstraction. I am always trying out new mediums but I mostly use oil paint, watercolors, gouache, and alcohol ink. I received my Bachelors degrees in both Painting and Photography in May 2010, and I completed my Masters in Painting at the San Francisco Art Institute in May 2012. Creating is a necessity for me, and I don't know who I would be without it. I crave that artistic release. I love connecting with people through my art, because each piece I create is a little part of me. I hope you like what you see, and if you have any questions don't hesitate to reach out!
