The desire to create has been part of my life as long as I can remember.  My materials and methods have changed over time with my ability and maturity. I have explored a wide range of media, including oils, acrylics, ceramics and prints.  I am always interested in learning.  About fifteen years ago, I decided to try watercolors for the first time.  My only regret is I should have tried them sooner.  They are very user-friendly for me.  If you only have a short time to paint and the paint dries, just add water.  I love color, any color, although some of my friends think everything I do has some purple in it.  My inspiration has mostly come from nature.  I am fortunate that we have a place on the water, and it has provides me with a rich source of ideas.  I am interested in the light and the shadows.  I like the relationships between objects.  My methods are traditional with a little experimentation.  The results are simply my interpretation of what I see.
