Hi! Welcome and thank you for coming to learn more about me.

I love to paint with watercolors. The movement and dance that occurs between the pigment and water along with the unpredictable results are fascinating to me. Every painting I sit down to do is an adventure!

My goal is to share my love for, and awe in, the creation of beauty. I feel the best art touches my heart. The feeling may be joyous, peaceful, or even sad (one of my favorite art pieces makes me cry). Mosl of all, I want to convey a feeling of wonder and draw the viewer closer to the creator of all beauty.

I consider myself a self-taught artists, though I have taken workshops and studied many art techniques through DVD's and online. My favorite workshop was with Ron Ranson, a well known watercolorist who incorporates impressionistic technique with asian technique.

I have always been a creative person, but I didn't begin painting in watercolor until I became ill with a difficult chronic illness (M.E.) As I began looking for new ways to express myself that I discovered watercolor. I am so glad I did. No matter how ill I am, or how much my body hurts, it brings me great joy every time I sit down to paint!

Thank you for visiting. Some of the paintings here are available as Originals, and the price is noted. Others are only available as prints. I am very friendly so feel free to contact me with any questions you might have!
