As I paint, my emphasis
is on the patterns created by light and shadow, color and line and the
translucent quality of the watercolor medium. These comprise the
abstract pieces that make up the representational whole of the painting.
I use a rather controlled and detailed approach, working from my own
photography. I employ the technique of layered washes and glazes because
it enables me to achieve a depth and brilliance of color, which
stimulates the eye, and best captures the intensity and luminosity of
I hope to inspire us all to recognize beauty in what
seems to be ordinary and consider that it is a unique gift.
