I eliminate unessential details and use minimal representation in my paintings. The organic, fluid style of my work suggests the changing natural landscape. My artistic journey has taken me beyond using transparent
watercolor in a realistic manner, to a more contemporary, impressionistic, and experimental style of painting. Using a variety of painting surfaces allows me to develop the texture and intense color central to my paintings. My current series is derives from a rafting/hiking trip to the Grand Canyon and Colorado River. The geology, patterns, atmospheric conditions and history, along with the physical challenges left an emotional and visual impression on me. My interactions with nature provide endless inspiration.
