Artist Statement

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.

You bring together your sense of what youve painted — and hope that the viewer can feel some of that — 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....
