As a traditionally trained artist, I am inspired by both nature and our human nature.  I often use playful methods to start my paintings. These may include non-traditional watercolor methods, such as the use of sand, or collage, or textures implied or actual, building layers of transparency and leaving evidence of the process.
  Even though I may use playful methods to start my paintings, I still believe in draftsmanship and craftsmanship.
