I began with Watercolors, tried Acrylics and Pastels, and finally, after a long period, found Watercolors were for me, easier to work with. Eventually, after a few years, I decided to try other media and am now using Acrylics, Colored-pencils, Alcohol Inks as well as Watercolors. I love a wide array of subject matter but love to paint portraits capturing the individual personalities I can often see hidden away. Painting gives me peace and is a daily part of my life.
