I have always been drawn to the rugged landscapes and rolling hills of Texas, my home. I'm always on the lookout for a spectacular sunset or an interesting view wherever I go. I have painted throughout the United States, France, Italy and Spain. Watercolor is my medium of choice. I love the way it moves and blends in a way that requires letting go of control in order for it to do its own thing. I want to show the beautiful way dappled light falls across a hill or the way the sky looks pink just as the sun is rising early in the morning. It's these little moments that are so fleeting but excite me the most, as to say, "Hey, stop and look at this." I use vibrant color to show the contrast of light and shadows. I like to drop in unexpected colors or spatter paint to evoke a sense of casual fun to my paintings.
