Artist statement:
I love the way light makes color define objects and space for the human eye. For me, the transparency of watercolor letting the paper shine through wonderfully expresses that light. It is exciting to discover every day how the water brings surprise and serendipity into my painting process, constantly challenging my eye to free itself from literal observation and let the brush play with and nudge what’s happening on the paper. I like the plein air approach of responding directly to something I find beautiful with a quick painting, whether it is out of doors in a landscape or inside with an interesting vegetable, folds in cloth, or shadows reflecting light. Whatever the subject, it’s about seeing objects in space in the language of light and color and trying to convey the beauty of it all.
