I love the arts! I've always loved the passion and creativity the artist expresses. I love watching artists as they paint, draw, sing, write, dance, or play their music! Best of all, I passionately love being an artist! The freshness of a new piece is always so exciting. Itís an adventure in possibilities!

Although I first painted with acrylics and oils, as soon as I was introduced to water media, I became a water-colorist. For me, it was almost a textural thing. It was the difference between going wading in a thick jelly or skinny dipping in a spring fed pond thatís so clean you can see everywhere you look, with perfect clarity! The movement of the paint as it swims across the paper or blends with another color is a visual party you just donít want to miss.

So, what is my painting style? I have always been an artist, but was most often led towards an expressionistic painting style. That does seem to be the common thread running through many of my paintings. I strive to evoke an emotional experience or response, sometimes even distorting physical reality in favor of an emotional expression. I want my paintings to awaken a feeling, remind the viewer of a forgotten moment, or open a door to an unexpected possibility!
