I love to travel to quiet, scenic remote spots of natural beauty. I desire to paint the sound of a gentle breeze coming through the trees, the feel of the cool moist shadows, and the captivating movements of water flowing around a rock and what lies underneath.
I’m passionate about painting a deeper view. Seeing not only the pool at the bottom of a waterfall, but also, the colors of the sky reflected in the ripples of the moving waters. Underneath these ripples, the rocks and their shadows, and the color of light reflecting the movement along the shore.
My goal is to feel a connection to the painting itself, transporting me back to the moment that inspired me to paint it.
I have found excitement in the transparencies of watercolors; my characteristic of attention details is what inspires me.
