I reside with my husband, Steve, on a wooded acreage north of Williamsburg, Iowa. I am currently an Iowa Watercolor Society board member, exhibit chairperson and website administrator. After progressing through painting with acrylics, I found the fluidity and spontaneous “dance” with watercolor irresistible. I engage this media to tap into the unusual and sensitive nature of my subjects. I seek out and express the moods, feelings and emotions of objects often thought to be inert, enticing the viewer to explore a “spirit” within. My techniques often add a twist of the unusual with the occasional nod to the unexpected.
