THE ARTIST'S STATEMENT

I work with watercolors and love the luminosity and spontaneity of watercolors. I am constantly inspired by nature: by its trees, by its rocks, by the way the light hits a landscape and produces shadows. I hope to achieve the same magical feeling in my watercolors. I love to use deep contrasts to bring out dramatic qualities of a landscape painting. But most important is to bring a luminous quality into a painting as if light is in the painting.
