Although my medium of choice is watercolor, I do oils and acrylics. I find watercolor more exciting, more FUN, and I tend to experiment with technique in watercolor, where I tend to vary my subject matter in other medium. I am a photographer also, however, I see photography as capturing a moment in time with everything static, where in painting, even representational, you put your experiences, history, your entire person into the painting. You bring together your sense of what youve painted â and hope that the viewer can feel some of that â along with, and more important, their sense of their own experiences mirrored in the painting. I love what I paint and have FUN expressing that love.
My art has been exhibited in group and solo shows over my painting career, both juried and non-juried exhibits. My work has been seen in the Seattle Art Museum, Fredrick Nelsons, Carnegie Institute, Pitsburgh, PA, San Jose Civic Auditorium, Lafayette Art Wine, Lafayette Gallery, International Harmony in the Arts Exhibit, Aspen Surgical Center, MDUUC Gallery, LAA Gallery, Creekside Gallery, Gateway Gallery, Delta Gallery, Lindsay Dirksx Brown Gallery and libraries and events throughout northern California.
