Always inspired by nature, I observe, collect, photograph, sketch, journal... percolating is part
of my process. I am
a traditionally trained artist who likes to experiment. I really try not to
be a predictable watercolorist. I am a painter.
I love to begin the process of manipulating 
materials, the flow of water based media, textures implied or real,
with so
many variations
that a brush cannot do. Even though I like to use playful methods to start my paintings,
I
still believe in draftsmanship and craftsmanship. Painting is a means of communication for me, even though 
sometimes I don’t know
where its heading.
