Inspiration

It's no accident that I live in Colorado, which boasts an ever-changing display of color, hence the name (Color-ado). Being surrounded by the exaggerated colors in nature constantly influences my work. 

I love observing nuances in nature; patterns, lines, shapes, textures, color-changes, and movement. Nothing is too small to capture my attention or adoration.
