I strive to convey raw beauty and emotion in my watercolor paintings through an up-close perspective with composition, color and light. My primary source of inspiration comes from the beauty of nature and life around me. I am passionate about watercolors, they are a challenging, magical medium. Being an artist to me is an amazing, unending journey of discovery and development.
As a small child I was inspired creatively by watching my father and grandfather create stain glass windows and glass cut work. At a young age I was amazed by my ability to draw. My mother recognized my talent and encouraged. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Michigan School of Art. Upon graduation I worked for several companies doing graphic design and illustration on the east coast. After several years I moved back to Michigan and started dwb Design Studio, winning hundreds of awards for my clients . I have taught graphic design and painting at the college, regional and local level. Helping a student grow as an artist is very rewarding.
Currently I paint, teach and display my work in juried, solo and group shows. I have been fortunate to win regional and local juried and people’s choice awards. My paintings are in numerous corporate and private art collections. I am proud to be the Immediate Past President of the National Watercolor Society and Signature member as well as the past President of the Michigan Water Color Society and Great Lakes Fellow.
