I am a nature-loving Scientist-Artist hybrid. I love to document life and paint with watercolors. I worked for many years as an ecologist and cartographer, and have been an avid photographer since childhood. I explore my artistic side with the analytical mind of a scientist and the creative heart of a naturalist.
When painting with watercolors, I notice the details as well as the broader patterns of light and color. I find inspiration in the play of of light and dark. Some of my painting designs are semi-abstract, while others offer a more realistic depiction of the subject matter. I often paint with a limited palette, using just two paint colors in a single piece of art.
My interests also include illustration, calligraphy, map design, and stamp carving. I have enjoyed photographing nature, landscapes, and seascapes for over 25 years, and often use these inspirations in my artwork.
This Zazzle shop features some of my unique artwork as prints and on other fun products. I sell personalized, original watercolor paintings on Etsy. For more information about my art, visit www.bluejaybay.net
