As an artist I want to share visual statements of what I love, what I see as pleasant, and what makes me happy.  With my artwork I hope to evoke some of the same feelings in the viewer.

I find such pleasure in taking a typical scene and translating it into a study of value and color that reflects my perception of it.  It’s the things that are familiar to us that touch our hearts when we see the beauty of them emphasized in a work of art.

I paint primarily with watercolor. I emphasize “with” because it’s like a partnership, a give and take relationship. The watercolor seems to have a personality of its own….it goes where it wants to go on the paper!  But as I have learned the properties of watercolor, I have learned to take control of the flow of the paint and also take advantage of the “surprises” it gives me on the paper. After painting with watercolor for over 20 years, I’m still getting those surprises.  That’s the joy of the medium.
