Artist Statement
The splendor of nature, the voice of music, words in poem or prose, elegant textures, and color are my inspirations. By expressing my love of all things beautiful I hope to connect to others thru my art. Although I admire artists who bring our attention to conditions in this world that have left many of us bewildered, disoriented and desolate, I create what makes me happy and hope it makes others happy, also. The world is still a beautiful place.

My principal medium is transparent watercolor. My preferred substrates are fabric and paper or a combination of both. I work intuitively, making marks on a wet substrate. When dry, I often repaint sections or even the entire surface and enhance and strengthen the work with painted collage and digital transfers. My transfers are taken from sections of my paintings on paper or my photos. I quilt with a home sewing machine. It is an adventure. My goal is to create a well-composed and unique painting on fabric.
