I am a self-taught crafter for the most-part. After retiring, I decided to take up a new challenge. This new challenge is learning to paint with watercolors. I really enjoy the learning process and I get excited about any new methods that have been shown to me at workshops. Most of the paintings that I have done have been on Arches 140 or 300 lbs cold press watercolor paper and Winsor Newton or Daniel Smith watercolor paints.
Art has been a big part of my life. My mother and grandmother were always creating wonderful things. I have early memories of a multitude of colors, textures and patterns. I was encouraged to explore on my own. In 1994, I took a watercolor course and found a medium I fell in love with. I realized the amount of freedom you had in creating color, texture and value in watercolor. I added other mediums to my paintings and each one leads me to explore. I am drawn to color, texture, pattern and form.
I took an interest in learning to paint in 2009. I have had a huge interest in photography all my life and through a friend I drifted into painting , both acrylic and watercolor and also pen and ink. All mediums enthuse me.
