“I like to think of my paintings as a love letter to the people, places, and moments that make up the human experience.”
I’ve always been a dreamer, a romantic, and an artist. I’ve been told more than once that I have my ‘head in the clouds.’ I admit that is true. I see the world differently. Maybe that is why I like watercolor so much. It is fluid and free and has a hard time playing by the rules. I had a traditional art education but I just couldn’t seem to follow the rules either. I kept asking, “What if I did this?” Or, “What if I changed that?” Early on I developed a loose style of watercolor painting and over time it has evolved to a very loose style. I like to start a story with my paintings but then, I want the person looking at them to find their own story and finish what I started. That is how I connect with the collector, by creating a story telling relationship. I want to do more than paint a pretty picture. I want to create art that connects us thoughts, memories, feelings, and beauty.
