As an artist I believe that each artist sees things that no one else sees in quite the same way.
The individual artist shares a personal vision in their art and the viewer is able to see something through someone else’s eyes.
All of this “conversation” between the artist and the viewer is what art is about to me. It enriches everyone’s life in some way.
Materials used to create my art include transparent watercolor, watercolor paper, watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons and sometimes opaque watercolor. My process is usually direct painting on dry or wet paper depending on what effect I want to create. And I also have begun painting watercolor on wood using watercolor ground.
I received a B.A. degree in Art from Idaho State University in 1970 and later went back to get my teacher’s certificate in Art Education and Library Science.
I have been awarded the “Distinguished Merit Member” status in the Idaho Watercolor Society, having won awards in 3 or more annual exhibitions.
