Artist Statement

I am constantly looking for inspiration in the world around me. I keep a camera with me at all times, looking for images that touch me emotionally.
I look for that emotional reaction when I am deciding what to paint.

I grew up with art, as my mother was an artist. However, after graduating college, except for a year in the early 1980s when I took a couple courses at my local community college, I confined my involvement in art to visiting museums and studying exhibitions. I started painting again in 2003, and have been working consistently at it since then.

I have always loved watercolor as a medium while it is very unforgiving, its freshness cannot be replicated. I am working very hard to loosen up my brushstrokes, to take advantage of the characteristics of the medium.

I particularly like painting people. I am always trying to capture that one spark about the person that makes the painting come alive. I go to life drawing classes whenever possible to practice drawing, as I think that a good drawing is an important framework of any painting.

Artist Support Haiti Relief

After the earthquake, our life drawing class model was from Haiti. I have created the attached block prints from poses from that class. These matted
8" by 10" images are available on a choice of 3 different types of paper for a donation to a Haiti related relief organization (suggested minimum $45).
Prints are available at Tampa Artist Emporium at Starbucks Plaza, 3415 Bay to Bay Blvd., Tampa, FL 33629
