I began painting with oil on canvas in high school. I later switched to acrylics and then to airbrush and photography. A business career put my art on hold. Then, in 1991, I rediscovered my creative "roots" in watercolor. The transparency of watercolor delights me. I love the way colors move and blend into unexpected and pleasant surprises. The capture of light and shadow is continually fascinating.
After living in Hawaii for nearly 20 years, I now reside in Coastal Southern California. My art is focused on the flora and scenery of California, Hawaii, Mexico and the Southwest. A lifelong love of beauty and of nature has translated itself into my paintings and I can see how the facets of my past have been brought together into the expression of my art today.
