31. Minneapolis, MN. Watercolor/mixed media artist.
My love began with traditional watercolors. For me, the unpredictability and uncontrollable nature of watercolor made it the most exciting and expressive medium of all. The opportunity to meander somewhere between mastery and complete lack of control during the course of a painting make it one of the most engaging mediums.
Moving from the accepted definition of watercolor into the realm of digital watercolors opened up a huge new range of possibilities. After discovering a wide range of watercolor paint brush textures for Photoshop, I began experimenting with processes. Using a Wacom tablet, I start my drawings in Illustrator and paint them in Photoshop.
My themes are ever changing. I'm heavily influenced by the state I live in and love, Minnesota.
