Artist’s Statement: “I am inspired by movement and energy. I paint my thoughts, sometimes split-second impressions of a subject. I grab the essence and the mood of a scene before my intellect is aware. Watercolor is my chosen medium. I love to exploit watercolor in an untraditional way with emphasis on a strong focal point.
"I think slow and long before placing my brush strokes, which are fast and deliberate. I struggle at times to visualize the final painting, as the finished product evolves in my mind. I am constantly reacting to fragments of my work, hoping to convey unity of familiar scenes with unfamiliar feelings of color and atmosphere."
