"Travel is often a path to my art. The two converge in my watercolor paintings and bring me joy and a sense of adventure.
Watercolor, with its fluidity, has evolved as my medium for expressing the pleasure I might find in a moment, a mood, the beauty that initially captured my imagination and desire to paint.
Painting enriches my life, giving me the satisfaction of creativity, the joy of reliving a memory, and the comfort of sharing my experience with others.
I am a member of Watercolor Society of Oregon. "
