Thank you for visiting my website. Please click on the Series tab on the left. You will see three thumbnail images, each represents different themes for my work in recent years. Click on the thumbnail to see the work from these concentrations.


Although I have worked in virtually every medium, watercolor is my true love. As I tell my students, watercolor is the only medium that has a mind of its own, and while it will respond to being controlled, it is happiest when it is allowed to roam. My work has gone in several different directions and taken several themes in the past several years. I find that this enables me to leave one theme and return to another with a refreshed eye and feeling. Here briefly are the three major themes that I have been concentrating on.
