About the Artist

Even though I am not a professional artist, I own my studio where I watercolor and do pottery. I have studied under, and have taken many workshops from well known professional artists for years. I would say my forte is painting wildflowers and botanicals. On weekends I go to my country home where I can plein-air paint in Bay County Fl where many of these Leon Co. specimens, also, live.

Artist's Statement

Shown brush strokes is my way of realizing the intricate structure of nature. By translating the re-emerging shapes and shadows occurring in our flora and fauna through the medium of watercolor, I have come to realize the dream of "keeping the wilted at bay."
