Interesting shapes and bright colors are my passions. A fascinating shape or color combination is often the first thing that attracts me to my subject matter. After spending much of my younger life in Yosemite at a family home, I am drawn to natural themes. I like to look beyond the colors typically associated with rocks, water, trees, and flowers and pursue my feelings, rather than their photographic details. Watercolor is my preferred medium, because it lends itself to beautiful layering and blending. I am currently using liquid watercolors that enable me to achieve intense colors while retaining the ability to create delicate washes. My mother was a watercolorist, and I spent time both learning from her and taking workshops with her. I have had workshops from fine instructors such as Jane Burnham, Stephen Quiller, John Salminen, Dale Laitinen, and Mike Bailey. I am a member of the Santa Clara Valley Watercolor Society and have participated in their annual shows. I have been sharing my art through Silicon Valley Open Studios for ten years.
