“Starting in art school and all through my early years as an illustrator I was encouraged to paint in many different mediums and styles. I tried them all but, in the end, I settled on watercolor. The spontaneity and flow just fit my personality and style. What I look for and strive to achieve can only be captured in this wonderful medium. The beautiful play of light and shadows, especially on and around the human figure, is what draws me in and gives me my inspiration.”
