Artist’s Statement

Having been passionate about the beauty in nature my whole life, its bounty and creatures alike, I realize now that a passion for watercolor painting was an inevitable choice. A desire for it is wedged within me, creating an ongoing and joyful challenge. It is a path I journey along and find it is dotted with times of growth and moments greater understanding of the medium and the subjects that draw me. If my work finds a home in another’s heart it is simply, the ‘cherry on top’ :).
