As a young child I spent hours with my grandfather in his garden watching him tend to the gorgeous flowers and vegetables that he grew. The flowers, leaves, rocks, and tree bark in the garden fascinated me. I realize now that those were the experiences that inspired my artistic vision and the way I see the world, in various shades of color, repetition of patterns and textures.
Watercolor became my medium early on and I painted professionally and taught watercolor for many years. Later I began to incorporate photography into my artistic practice as well, always working to incorporate the painterly style of my watercolor to my photographic images.
We are surrounded by art every day if we take the time to see it. The patterns, colors, textures, and beauty of nature are the subjects and the inspiration of the images that I use in my line of “Functional Fine Art” consisting of art prints, stationery, calendars, fabric, and fans.
