Watercolor Paintings
 
I don’t try to paint the way things really are, as much as how I feel about them. For me, painting is emotional. This holds true whether painting landscapes, still life or people. It’s all about how colors react and relate to each other.
 
I am a native Pacific Northwest watercolorist. My art is a reflection of my family roots, my love of the natural beauty of Oregon, and by 30 years of living in Japan, Germany, Italy, Spain and England. I have fearless courage to take risks and try new experiences which is reflected in this life journey. These cultural influences have blended together resulting in a painting style that is uniquely cosmopolitan, yet with a rustic representation of colors and techniques. Recently I have added more texture to my watercolors. I have experimented by painting on canvas rather than on watercolor paper. This creates a richer, bolder look like an oil painting. When finished, the watercolor is sealed with an acrylic glaze. Also, by adding hand painted papers to traditional watercolors, I have created some unusual paintings with the look and feel of collage
