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 cutwork. At a young age I was amazed by my ability to draw. My mother recognized my talent and encouraged me. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Michigan School of Art. I previously worked as a graphic designer for many years. Currently, I paint, teach and display my work in juried, solo and group shows. I have won regional and local juried and people’s choice awards. My paintings are in numerous corporate and private art collections. I am proud to be President Emeritus of the National Watercolor Society and a Signature member as well as President Emeritus
of the Michigan Water Color Society and a Great Lakes Fellow.
