Windblown, watercolor on rice paper

Artist’s Statement
I started painting 20 years ago simply to fill some time that was available. Embarking on that new adventure, I was immediately captivated and haven’t looked back.
The years have been spent striving to master the medium and finding my inner artistic voice.
My work is derived from what I see as I tend my gardens and as I walk various paths and trails. Although I take photos for technical reference, I let my inner vision guide me in creating the floral and plant forms. I try to share my enjoyment with the viewer.
