Watercolor has been my passion ever since I applied my first brush stroke. I love the spontaneity of a loaded brush of pigment mixed with water to create luminous colors. I was taught by a Chinese master to paint koi fish by looking for them in a sea of paint. “Look and ye shall find” is the concept and it works. I love creating beauty, so florals and nature subjects are what I mostly paint. My love affair with painting has changed my life. I am currently retired from public school teaching and feel blessed to be able to pursue my passion. Painting changes the way you see the world and I love sharing my vision. I work in watercolor, acrylics and oils. I do commissions for house portraits, or special subjects. I teach watercolor workshops and classes for Goggleworks.
