Scientific Illustration meets my favorite flowers

I love to illustrate and often wonder if I should be a painter. Hmm. So I decided to mix the two and came up with the following results. Enjoy~

Telling a story without words

Sometimes when I begin a painting I have a clear picture of how it is “supposed” to turn out.  Honestly, very few have turned out the way I have envisioned and that is probably a good thing.  Imagery and symbolism are important for me so I include them as often as I can in my paintings.  Backyard party is a culmination of symbols from my childhood and found is more dream like symbols that kept popping up in my head. Enjoy~

These paintings emerged from pure abstraction. So much fun to figure out the end result. I loved scratching into the paint and adding variables that didn’t match.

Ocean Storms

Two more paintings of an abstract ocean storm.  These started out as pure abstraction and I had no idea how they would play out. I was pleased with the outcome.
