Featured artist in Colored Pencil magazine

I’m thrilled to announce that I am the featured artist for the July 2014 Colored Pencil magazine!  The four-page full-color article talks about my background, process and goals, and includes two full pages of images of my work.  And just look at that cover!  My Chorus of the Tulips made for a great cover image.twby_140772_1You can order a digital and/or print copy here:  http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/775867
