            I paint my moods. You can see what I painted while happy and you can see when I've painted with static and uncertainty. Abstracts are my therapy when I’m feeling overwhelmed and out of control.
            Mostly, I paint what I find beautiful in nature. Beauty doesn’t necessarily mean pretty; some beautiful things are quite dark and sad. My art is a reflection of the emotion the subject made me feel.
           My favorite facet of art is how one image will mean something completely different to everyone who views it. One person might see beauty, another pain, another something else altogether. I once painted an abstract of 2 people; one person saw the tranquility of the lovers I painted, while someone else saw two bugs. I appreciated both interpretations.
             I want my art to last, so I use light fast Kuretake and Rembrandt watercolors, as well as Arches watercolor paper. When you buy a piece of my art you aren’t just buying a picture to look at; you’re investing in a piece of me.
            Thank you for taking the time to get to know my work.
