As an artist, I am always observing my surroundings for potential paintings, while constantly interpreting my personal vision. Usually, I will develop a subject that intrigues me through multiple expressions. Working in a series enables me to explore a subject and know it well enough to express it in many moods. At the moment, watercolor has my attention. I love the unexpected surprises that the medium presents and the freedom it provides. Although I deeply admire painters who are proficient in realism, my goal as an artist is to produce a painting that has the excitement of creation and expression while still offering a subject which invites the viewer to find a sense of joy and shared experience.
