Artist's bio

The unpredictability and fluidity of watercolor are what excites me. I love to watch the colors blend and the painting paint itself. I took a class in watercolor thirty years ago and fell in love with the medium. Since then, I have painted off and on while working as an RN. Other than taking a workshop with Janet Rogers and one with Skip Lawerence, I have been learning on my own with books by Charles Reid. I love his direct painting approach and his loose, watery style. Charcoal just came naturally for me. I think I am drawn to these two mediums because they both let me work in a spontaneous, expressive way.
