About


Artist Statement

I have always been drawn to the luminous medium of watercolor.  My choice of subject matter varies as I seek to express what inspires me at the moment. This can be the sweet gaze of a beloved pet, a fresh and innocent new cactus bloom, the play of light and shadow across an interesting face, or the challenge of taking a known subject and elevating the excitement level in some new way.  I love to experiment and try new ideas and techniques.

HOW I paint these inspirations is all about the use of textures and luminous, juicy color, color, color!  Did I say I love color? YES!  I love color!  I love to splash a fun and unexpected color or pigment into my paintings.  I don’t always choose color based upon exactly what I see, but rather, what I feel will tell the story.

WHY I paint is to share some of the JOY I feel about the subject through my use of color.  If my work brings a smile, I feel my goal has been accomplished.
