I am a watercolor artist and have been painting since I was eleven years old. I have always painted in watercolor, and I find it to be a fascinating medium that is both challenging and rewarding. I am primarily a landscape artist, and I find great enjoyment in observing and painting the natural world. Nature's various moods, with constantly changing light and atmosphere, make landscape painting...
... a unique and memorable experience, particularly when done "en plein air" (i.e. outdoors). Although I do not plan on pursuing a career in art, I will continue to create paintings throughout my life and share them with others.
