I have been exploring art from an early age but it has only been in the past few years that I have been drawn to the watercolor challenge. Watercolor commands going with the flow – so much magic can happen. My painting goal is interpretive rather than actual. Daily I look forward to picking up my brushes. Expanding my repertoire of painting techniques is my current focus.

 

Whatever the medium, however, nature is always my inspiration.

Art instruction began for me at the Art Institute of Chicago during high school summer breaks.  Although I kept an art hand in over the years, it was only after retirement that I began to focus on watercolor, taking local college courses and as many workshops as I can fit in my schedule.
