I am a watercolorist who is captivated by the way patterns, textures, and light reflect on objects. My work focuses on capturing those reflections, on paper.
Most of my paintings start with a series of photographs. To achieve a more abstract appearance, the subject is shot close up, at unusual angles; arranging and rearranging objects, material, and flowers until I find a pleasing composition.
When the brush hits the paper, I am fascinated by the way watercolors mingle together creating exciting new colors.
Once I've started a painting, it's hard for me to put down the brush. I can't wait to see where the process will lead me!
My original focus, as an art major at Endicott College, was on pottery. I later expanded into sculpting clay ornaments, before finding my way to watercolors.
I am a member of local art associations, as well as, a Signature Member of the Rhode Island Watercolor Society and have had my paintings juried in four national shows.
My work has appeared at various galleries and shows throughout New England.
