The awakening of thought and stirring of my emotions may be caused by many things. Color, light, shadow, history, and mood are a few examples of things that spark my imagination. As an artist I strive to capture that first emotion in my painting.
I believe that most people today are too busy to see things that happen all around them. Through my art, I try to show the beauty of these things…a curtain gently blowing in a summer breeze, a flower blooming, or a fog lifting from a sleepy morning harbor. I try to capture the viewer’s attention with a visually stimulating design, and hold their attention by creating a mood. Looking at these small happenings in nature has a calming affect on the viewer
My work is included in many corporate and private collections throughout the United States as well as in national juried exhibits such as Watercolor West, The Louisiana Watercolor Society, and the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society. The Wisconsin Arts Board has purchased a number of my paintings and serigraphs to be included in collections around the state.
