Artist Statement

My expressive watercolors offer a vibrant look at the natural world. With expressive strokes I tell the story of the setting. Locations are chosen where people, animals and buildings often interact in the narrative of the natural world.

I work with primary colors and use different methods to apply layers of color. My work is a practice in expression that brings forward the beauty in the lit subjects. I create as much from my imagination as the source material. I utilize photography to find the subject and draw to construct interesting compositions. The viewer should find the subject as interesting as the expression and color combinations used to represent the scene.
