Artist Statement I am self-taught along with private study with both locally and nationally known artists. Watercolor is my first choice, however, many of my pieces are multimedia with collage. I also enjoy the intensity of working with liquid watercolors, water based inks or alcohol based inks on Yupo paper. I am excited with each piece that I work on. Each picture seems to explode with a vibrancy and a life of its own. Impressionistic to abstract design forms the basis of my work. I don't often paint the 'real' - but the 'illusion' of the real. My subject matter is the world around me. I paint trying to capture a certain mood of a moment in time and of fragile memories in my mind's eye. I love color and texture. Depending on what my heart feels on a day that I'm painting, it may be flowers with their intricate petals and valleys of darks and peaks of lights. At other times it is capturing the sea with its sunsets and storms. Hidden within, if you look really close, you might see woodland nymphs, bears or even an indian or two!
