I'm drawn to watercolor by its transparency and the way light interacts with it.
More recently, I've been doing more mixed media including other watermedia, photography
and digital painting. I tried to be meticulous in my work, something that came naturally
with my background in science. Planning used to be just a "before thing" but now
is integral to my artistic process. Every painting or photograph stands on its
own but now I often ponder how the work can become part of larger expression. In
my search for a distinct aesthetic voice, I've been doing landscapes, figures and
My decision process is a merger of careful planning and inspiration. This was operative
in paint, brush paper selection and just about every tool needed, including the digital
tools. Each painting begins with a story or emotion. I love colors; working spontaneously
and watching the image and the emotion take shape on the paper or virtually. I hope
a viewer can feel a sense of intimate engagement in the finished artwork.
