I think of all my extensive body of work as an exploration in defining beauty*. My work in floral watercolor ranges from hyper-realistic traditional botanicals to more impressionistic works. My goal with my botanical work is to capture the beauty of nature in a way that educates and informs the viewer. My watercolor portrait/collage work also seeks to define beauty by depicting portraits of modern women in a variety of historical and literary roles. The watercolor portraits of women feature collage backgrounds and often, collage clothing and accessories. 'Defining Beauty' is also the title of my current retrospective show in Georgetown, Texas.
