"The Art of Observation"

Oak seedling, original Illustration

Botanical Art

I have always loved both art and science and use careful observation to create paintings that display nature's beauty. My journey as an artist begain as a little girl sketching in the woods and has progressed to a love of almost all mediums, but oils are my favorite. Enjoy browsing the gallery.


I still have a number of new, small illustrations for sale online, including this little oak seedling.

Painting time has been hard to come by, but I have managed to squeeze in a few hours here and there, mostly late at night. I hope to finish this painting up by the middle of the summer, and I already have a spot picked out for it in my living room.
