Painting in watercolors is my key to the secret garden, my way down the rabbit hole, my looking glass. Seeing my mother paint started it all. Painting helps me connect with my inner self, it’s uplifting in spirit, it’s serious play, it’s enlightening and invigorating. The unpredictable flow of water deeply connects with my personality and when my work is going well, I feel like a child in the candy store who can have it all!
I paint from the inside out. Though I work quite deliberately, consciously employing both traditional and innovative watercolor techniques, my inner emotional self is the undisputed guide when I am picking the next subject for my painting. The same guide helps me decide what I am trying to accomplish in a painting, pick how warm or cool I want to lean towards and it also helps me as I think through my focus areas.
My signature painting style is to paint loose, with lots of colors that please and appease but all my images are meant to attract the viewer by virtue of their simplicity. I strive to celebrate the extraordinary every day! When I work with watercolors, I am reminded of spontaneity that is life, color that has the capacity to transform and take on any mood you want and how beautiful our universe truly is.
