Being creative can be achieved through many paths.

As an artist, my exploration of painting techniques, different media,
and the study of other artist’s methods will provide a lifetime’s pursuit of knowledge.

After the methods are studied and techniques practiced, I believe that an artist needs to communicate their individuality, a personal viewpoint, or feeling. If that resonates within the viewer and creates a connection to the piece of art then I have succeeded as an artist.

I currently work in traditional watercolor on paper because it is a spontaneous medium
 which allows me to freely express my art. Hwever, I continually explore other media
as it is important to me to maximize ideas and possibilities.

Being a part of the Iowa Watercolor Society, Iowa Artists, and Creative Artists organizations has taught me self-expression is the point, creativity is the process and my paintings are the product and so, I paint, and paint, and then I paint again.

I hope you enjoy my work.
