Artist Statement:
Watercolor has been my principle medium throughout much of my painting career but, most recently, I have expanded beyond my earlier representational approach to one that is more explorative and experimental. Two factors have been influential in this transition: the use of Yupo, a non-porous synthetic paper and the discovery of alcohol inks as an alternative fluid medium to watercolor. These inks, highly pigmented and quick-drying, flow and intermingle in ways that often cause unique and unexpected textures. Now retired, with more time to devote to my art, I have loved the opportunity to expand my art experiences and to have the time to explore new possibilities.
