As a painter, I am interested in touching the viewer’s spirit in a deep, long, and sensitive way. My desire to take the viewer on a transcendent trip to a place of peace, serenity and joy is the backbone of my paintings.
My passion for paper runs deep. I absolutely love working on paper surfaces. Discovering new paper and what its unique characteristics are and how it responds to watercolor or pastel, my two primary mediums, is a favorite pastime for me.
Captivated by the diversity of seascapes, from calm soothing surf to stormy seas, I bring the elements together in my watercolors and pastels using strong contrast of darks and lights. My fascination with shadows in the sand is always both a challenge and joy in my process of painting and working the paint to get just the right shade and just the right shape to tantalize the viewer and welcome them into my private world.
