Artist Statement / Bio
Where I come from:
I call both the Twin Cities, MN. and San Francisco, CA. my hometowns, having spent half my life in each Metro Area. Today however I call Florida my home.
My careers in sales, counseling and as an award winning Kitchen & Bath Designer, demanded that I understand the human psyche in order to satisfy the needs of my clients. I use that same ability now to interpret my subjects in watercolor. I find it mesmerizing to watch the vibrant pigments mingle on the paper, as the liquid travels across the shapes that it is bringing to life.
My Painting Process:
My paintings include whimsical creations that make one smile, compositions that comment on the issues of today's world, and others that are simply recording the beauty that surrounds us.
My paintings tell a story. I try to infuse my characters with a personality that draws the viewer into the story being told.
My work is the culmination of all that went before. It is the “me” that I am sharing with you.
