Black & White
Working in black and white is my absolute favorite. It allows you to get lost in the details. The majority of the content is made up of things I found in a set season. I work primarily in watercolor or pen and ink. These works range in scale from 5 inches to two feet in height.
I typically paint at a small scale in gouache. The paintings are meant to be like small treasures. They include acorns, buttons, candy and animals.
The silhouette became popular in the mid-18th century. My subjects are drawn from my family and things I find. They range in scale from one inch to three feet tall.
