Watercolor painting is magical. I never tire of its fluidity, transparency, and jewel-like luminosity. It is my vehicle for exploring my world---both real and imagined. I am intrigued by the many different shapes and forms of the natural realm---petals, leaves, and the treasure-trove of multi-faceted spaces and shadows in-between things. The process of first investigating these forms through contour drawing becomes the “jumping off place” for visual ideas to emerge. I enjoy experimenting with vivid color, outline, and varied gradations in this miraculous transformation of water, paint, and paper. Watercolor responds, reacts to the elements, just as flowers do. It is rewarding for me, as an artist, to work in a way that allows my compositions to take on a life of their own. I call these explorations “Botanical Dreamscapes.”
