Artist Statement

I am a native of Illinois who now resides in Oregon. I grew up in the Chicago area with its many art galleries and great museums. As a youngster I was very interested in art and took several trips on the bus to the Art Institute of Chicago. Later, as a young adult I spent a semester in Austria where I visited some of Europe’s greatest art collections.
I have been a watercolor artist for 20 years. Watercolor is a medium that is so spontaneous that it always creates interesting results. My interest in painting started with boats because my father worked as a ship builder in Chicago and often took me to where he worked at the harbors of Lake Michigan. Later, as I traveled more frequently I also became interested in landscapes and cityscapes.

I like your watercolors - not wishy washy. With the way you use bright colors you should try it on YUPO. It will change your life - did mine!
