Fascinated by the way watercolors bloom and blend in a way that other mediums can never do, the results surprise and delight me as I develop my paintings of the ordinary in still life, landscape, lace and florals. I love the bright sparkling colors and light one can only capture with that medium and sometimes add a little fun whimsy with metallics, fiber and collage! With great attention to detail and layering, I strive to capture the moment and bring a work of love to this beautiful world!
I currently work in a beautiful large, light-filled studio at Gallery 3 in the Schoolhouse Complex (behind Cottage Curator) in Sperryville, Virginia.
