When you take a flower in your hand and really look

at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give

that world to someone else.

The beauty of watercolour is seated in its unique quality of luminosity.  The ability to glaze layer over layer and retain this wonderful glow is a quality that has attracted many new artists in recent years.  The magical movement of the pigment landing on a puddle of water has a mesmerizing attraction to me.  As an artist I am motivated to capture those moments in time, sparked by the rhythm and play of light, the dramatic mood of a fierce sea or a brooding sky, perhaps to capture the delicate petals of a lovely flower lit with reflected light and cast shadows.  I am drawn like a magnet to balanced compositions encompassing both the subject and its shadows, to bursts of joyous color, to undulating reflections – perhaps a cluster of rowboats, a harbor side village, or just a shadow bedecked dirt path.  Of late, my passion seems to lie mostly in the beauty of nautical scenes. No matter how demanding painting can sometimes be, it always fills me with a huge sense of satisfaction and joy. In painting I escape into a World of my own, where I can revel in creating images with colour, shape and form.
