Art is a way of self expression. It gives me joy, it keeps me grounded and gives me a chance to forget about life’s daily stresses. When I show my work I hope the viewer is drawn into a painting and can have a bit of the same experience as I do when I paint. Forget about things and enjoy what they see.
I paint what inspires and challenges me. It comes in many forms, but vibrant, bright, bold colors and strong lines are always evident. I work mostly with watercolor and ink. Watercolor keeps me on my toes and lets me know I am not in total control. Things just happen sometimes. I have to let the paint tell me what to do.
I love to try new techniques and mediums and incorporate some different elements to my work. I never want to stop learning and trying new things. I have spent a lot of time trying to find my “style”. I believe that it comes when I stop trying so hard.
