"My paintings are my reaction to what I see and experience and they tell my story. I try to fit the technique, color choice and design elements to the piece, relating all the components to enhance the mood and message. This means I may treat each piece differently, but gives what I believe a full expression of what it is I am trying to say.
"I want to involve my viewers, to entice them through some realism while leaving some up to their imagination. I use watercolor because the washes offer many possibilities for putting paint to paper. I use acrylic, ink and collage because they offer textural qualities, and subtle details.
"My motivation to paint is that love of how water and color moves on the paper, the challenge to bring what happens to a successful conclusion, and to bring attention to the beauty in nature, scripture and the art of storytelling.
