“Excursions usually come from my travels and adventures whether around town, across the country or internationally. Being present in a scene and watching the energy of a location shift while capturing my version on paper is always an adventure regardless of the zip code. The light shifts, interesting people pass through the scene or stop to interact and tell me about their lives. I use ink & watercolor on paper, often with the water from wherever I am whether it be the ocean, lake, river, or puddle to move the color. This activity is by far one of my favorite in the world. As I put a lot of love into each of these sketches, it seems fitting and fun to offer them in a Valentine’s Sale!:)”

There is a wide range of affordable sale prices on paper matted originals between $5-$212.
