watercolors, ink paintings and monotypes
Throughout most of my art career, watercolor has been my primary medium. The flow and mingling of colors has intrigued me as well as the spontaneity that is intrinsic to the watercolor process. Variables, not only in color palettes but also in painting surfaces, give watercolor artists a range of expressive possibilities and most recently, I have used both Arches board and Yupo paper. I sometimes paint a series just to explore the unique characteristics of each.
Having just retired a few years ago, I have found much more time to devote to art. Because of this, I have been exploring additional avenues through classes and workshops in other media and have loved this opportunity to expand my art knowledge and experience. Studying monotype with Paula DeSimone and abstract painting with Richard Harrington over the last few years has had a powerful impact on me as an artist as a whole. Through studying with both, I have not only begun expressing my ideas through new art forms but in turn, these experiences have energized and strengthened my painting in watercolor.
