I have been learning about watercolor for 15 years. The goal of my painting is to transport my viewers into the image, to make them feel as if they are there and part of the scene. My style leans toward realism but does not fill in all of the details, leaving some of the creativity to the viewer. The medium of watercolor allows water and paint to perform magic on the paper. I love watching colors flow into one another blending into new and exciting creations. My subject is nature and the inspiring beauty that surrounds us. I love the power of nature on the rampage as well as nature at rest. Growing up in the Pacific Northwest I feel blessed to have so much beauty surround me. My husband and I spend our summers on the water living on board our 42’ wooden trawler Xanadu. I spend the winters painting in my studio.
