I started painting in 2008 following a career in marketing research and advertising.
People have described my watercolors as "fun", "charming", "whimsical", "friendly", "warm", "bold", "sensitive", heartfelt". . .I couldn't say it better myself. I paint because I enjoy painting and my aim is to bring enjoyment and smiles to those who see my work.
I love bright colors and interesting shapes as they bring joy to others, and that's what my artwork is about.
I paint the world around me, which means my paintings are often of familiar places and things. But I also paint from my imagination, sometimes bending reality. I do lots of landscapes, seascapes, and buildings with occasional paintings of people and plants. I love to paint animals as they have such charm and people love to see them.
