"Being an artist means that everything I look at is analyzed by form, color, and pattern. I love the randomness and spontaneity of nature; I appreciate the structure of architecture and the beauty of good design. When I paint I am relating to something specific at first, then composing some elements of inspiration around me into the art, regardless of whether I'm painting a landscape, a still life or a portrait. Using the watercolor medium and its' characteristics are intriguing. Photographing for references and exploring new mediums combined with my love of watercolor bring me to yet another journey.
