I have always been drawn to the landscape wherever I am. I love working in watercolor and other water media on various surfaces because it gives me freedom and spontaneity to create how I feel about a subject. I take a lot of photographs and do sketches, but I only use them as a jumping off place. Memories click in and that becomes the real inspiration for my landscape paintings. When I was younger I painted in a more realistic style and I still do as evidenced by the paintings presented in this tour. But as I grow older I often see the landscape in the more impressionistic way as I did as a child. I find I am drawn more by the colors and shapes I see than the scene itself. In the last few years I have been doing more abstract work in acrylic and watercolor, often collaged with textured papers. Even though I am moving toward abstract painting I still see landscapes in them.
