I am inspired by movement and energy. I paint my thoughts, sometimes split second impressions of a subject. When I glance at a scene to be painted, I capture the essence and the mood immediately. Watercolor has chosen me as my primary medium. I love to exploit the medium in a nontraditional way with emphasis on a strong focal point.
