Artist Statement

I love to paint and create in watercolors and have been painting in them exclusively since 1995.

I use rich, fresh, transparent colors and I try to achieve the look I want with as few layers as possible. I enjoy watching the colors mix and blend on the paper. My photos are the basis for most of my paintings and I work inside in my studio rather than outdoors.

Perhaps the most gratifying comment I receive from people viewing my artwork is that my paintings make them feel "happy". When I hear this, I know I have been successful in conveying my feelings about painting.
