There has never been a time in my life that art has not been my focus. My professional background was as an illustrator, graphic designer, and professor, even though the actual creation of art always overlapped. I started as a painter and moved to colored pencils, from an undergraduate painting major to a drawing major in graduate school. I spent years as an illustrator and fine artist, working specifically with colored pencils. I still do a majority of my work in colored pencil. This floral series was created with colored pencils over alcohol markers and incorporate gel medium texture. The combination creates a captivating visual effect that I'm excited about.
