Art is about illusion. I enjoy creating the illusion of three-dimensional space in a two-dimensional medium.
Watercolor as a medium is both controlled and spontaneous. I use both of these qualities as I seek to capture the essence of a subject, using the contrast of light and shadow to define the forms.
Sunny days in eastern Washington illuminate the flowers in my garden providing many of the ideas for paintings.
I often use collages made up of previous paintings to depict landscapes, which are based on real places I have visited.
