My paintings are inspired by the natural beauty and light that I find around me on hikes, walks, and snowshoe treks in the Lake Tahoe area and northern Nevada. My art background is in graphic design but I have painted in watercolor for many years. I enjoy the transparent quality of watercolor both in my painting technique and in the subject matter of my paintings whether it’s clear waters, glass, or backlit flowers and foliage.

Focusing on detail, strong values, and rich colors, I strive for a sense of depth and realism in my paintings. In the last three years, I have additionally been working in acrylics using layering and glazing techniques. Recently I’ve been sealing and varnishing many of my watercolors on paper bonded to aluminum panels or Aquabord panels so they do not have to be framed under glass or plexiglass. The process I use is as archival and UV protective as framing under museum glass according to a study by Golden Paints. I love not having the barrier of glass between the viewer and the painting
and not having to worry about glare and breakage.
