My work stems from the excitement and inspiration of all I observe and the desire to express this. I started painting in 2004 with one of those epiphany moments. I have always been fascinated and challenged by watercolour as it never fails to excite with the myriad of ways it can develop. A constant challenge but exceptional delight when it wins and sometimes on its own accord - giving surprising results. Learning to use watercolor on canvas has been the most exciting and challenging discovery for me - loving the way this broadens every potential. I exhibit in England and Florida and sell internationally.
I was born in Virginia in 1951, lived in England most of my life and just recently returned to the U.S. and discovered the great arts destination of St. Petersburg.
On Wednesday October 18th, 2017 I moved into one of the newly-built studios in the 1st Phase of the ArtsXchange in St Petersburg. This is a not-for-profit organization creating sustainable and affordable studios for every kind of artist building a complex of galleries, studios, restaurants, theaters etc. making it an arts destination.
