About the Artist
My extensive exploration of this world has enriched the foundation of my art.
Although I was born in Montana, I got to Texas as soon as I could and I most definitely consider myself a native Texan! After growing up in Houston, I had the opportunity to travel. I lived in South America, the West Indies, Egypt and Abu Dhabi
from 1984-1991. I have lived in the Clear Lake area since 1996. The rich tapestry of memories woven from my travels adds a sense of grounded passion to my paintings.
The desire to create has been with me since early childhood. Developing my skills as a craftsman guided my hand to the fine arts. With each medium studied, my ability to express myself artistically grew like stepping stones to a destination. I have tried my hand in many mediums; stained glass, etched glass, mosaic, floral design, fiber arts, sculpture, pencil sketches & watercolor. My experience also includes work in graphic design.
Ultimately, I settled into watercolor as my medium of choice. Like my work in glass, I am deeply intrigued by discovering new ways light interacts with the transparency and fluidity of the tints and washes. I trained at The Watercolor Art Society in Houston and have been learning, experimenting and evolving with the medium every since.
I enjoy capturing scenes of the beauty that surrounds me in life; the things that bring me joy. I am influenced by what I see and feel and I am motivated to share these feelings. Through painting, I find peace and passion. I invite you to enjoy the dance of my watercolors in your life too!
