So many of us walk through our lives not noticing that which is around us: the beautiful or not so obviously beautiful, the silhouette of a building or the graceful gesture of a hand. My job as an artist is to capture these unnoticed “precious moments” and bring them to the attention of my viewers. I recreate the essence of my memories in color, light and texture. For me, every work has a sense of nostalgia, telling a story about the people and places that I have known.
These drawings are created with pen, colored pencils, and pastels directly on top of torn-out dictionary pages. Available as prints and cards.
My paintings and dictionary pages are available at my online store, Gallery Maia.
