Artist statement

Getting outside is good for the soul. Through my artwork, I try to bring the outside in. Living with paintings that pay tribute to the natural world reminds us to slow down and reconnect with nature.

I work primarily in transparent watercolor because it allows layering of color resulting in rich colors. The basis for most of my paintings are garden flowers, animals and outdoor scenes.

Bio

I worked as a teacher and later as a school administrator. Upon retirement I wanted to explore my interest in new areas including watercolors. I had enjoyed the once a week art in elementary with my students but watercolor painting was far more complex than anything I had done with them. I began with lessons and a few workshops.  Wow!  I could really paint!  Now I continue challenging myself and learning new techniques.
