Sometimes I see auras around tree, flowers, ships, or even people...but I always see a plethora of colors. I have a passion for combining my creative mind with my environment to create and design my art. Although my subject matter changes and evolves through my life experiences and my love of nature, color is very important to me. My techniques also vary, as I let the water and the pigment embrace the paper and with my loving encouragement I become guided in the direction of beautiful color mixes and new shapes. The medium I use is watercolors as the vibrancy of its characteristics set the tone for the intensity of the glazing process which I love. I paint in a realist impressionistic as well as abstract realistic.
