I enjoy painting and appreciate beauty that surrounds us everywhere as a sense of wonder opens my eyes to many creative possibilities. My desire is to capture this simple yet striking beauty, and share and communicate with the viewer the essence of joy and peace through my painting.
Currently I paint using a pouring technique, which frees me from being overly concerned about color choices and at the same time it improvises strong value contrast. It is a delightful experience to see how primary colors mingle and flow on paper to create the transparent glow.
I find watercolor painting fascinating and absorbing.
I am grateful that there are endless opportunities for learning and growing.
