I strive to paint memorable and personal creatively authentic visions, carefully designed and technically proficient in my chosen medium. I prefer to express positive aspects of life. I prefer the watercolor medium because it allows the building of layers of rich glazed colors and textures which reflect light through to the white of the paper. My images usually focus on human, animal, and water themes, as they are infinitely various, subtle, and challenging.”
