I am a watercolor artist inspired by all the natural beauty that is around me every day. It may be the way the light has landed on a flower, the character and personality of a bird, or the beauty and lines that make up a person. I no longer look at the world and see ordinary things; instead, I see common things in a special way. The subjects I paint are recognizable but are not painted in a photographic manner. I believe that through its visual impact, a successful painting should invoke an emotional reaction in the viewer. I hope that you feel this when viewing my paintings.
