I express my love of painting and nature through tiny, semi-realistic paintings based on what I see in nature, experimenting with various mediums and materials. I have used these textures in digital and print designs as well to create a fascinating combination of digital, print, and paint.
Here is an example of one of my paintings that depicts a buck painted on tree bark from Texas. Additionally, there is a life-sized snail painted onto a small wooden disk (about 1.5 inches in size).

A Study on Reflection
For this project, students were prompted to find a reflective object and create a colorful environment for it using colored paper. Then, we were challenged to replicate our view in a painting. Below, you can see an image of my setup and the painting that I created.
Here is my creative interpretation of a color wheel! Students were prompted to create a tertiary color wheel and were given freedom in being creative in how to display it.
I decided to embrace my love of nature by displaying each color in painted leaves, each individual leaf representing 2 colors with the vein and leaf. Each leaf was then physically curled and crumpled to make it look slightly more realistic and give a 3D textured approach.
