The Artist Says:


What catches my eye is the effect light has on form in unique situations whether fleeting, spilling over, striking, etc. I challenge myself in capturing its dramatic and/or subtle effects. The spontaneous qualities of watercolor lends itself perfectly to my impressionistic style of painting. I strive for confident enthusiastic brushwork, the maximizing of color's value and intensity range and a fresh painterly approach, the result appearing effortless
