Water Media
Artist Statement

As a Fine Artist, classroom, and workshop presenter, it is my mission to express on canvas the world of beauty that surrounds us through the magical medium of watercolor. While creating a work of art presents challenges, it is also a method of finding and losing ourselves emotionally as we express what speaks to us. Once I choose a subject to paint, I ask myself what I want to say. With a bit of research, I determine my artistic approach. While painting, I marry design principles with watercolor techniques. When nearly done, I stand back, evaluate, and re-evaluate my work. As an art instructor, I encourage my students to fill their paintings with light, color, and depth as they bravely pursue their artistic potential.
