About The Artist
My love of the tropical surroundings in Florida and nature is what guides my inspirations for my work. Whether it is the wildlife, botanical or beach treasures, I make the sunlight an important part of the work. I want my viewers to get caught in the beauty of nature and enter my world as I see it.
I’m continually amazed with the medium of transparent watercolor because there is a transparent glow that I strive to achieve. The essence and technique of my style is the careful build-up of wet-in-wet layers of pigment. The pigments are sometimes dropped in clear water washes, which allow the colors to mingle and mix on the paper. My background as a graphic designer influences the strong compositions to my paintings.
