Artist Statement:For as long as I can remember I have always spent my free time drawing or painting. I have never been formally trained, it has always just been something I loved to do. Over the years I was never able to devote as much time to painting as I would have liked to. But now that my kids are grown, I have more free time to do what I love.
My love for the outdoors, anything from flowers, to sea turtles, birch trees to butterflies are my favorite subjects. The looseness of the watercolors and vibrant colors make it a perfect medium for me to create.
After painting a wedding gift for our friends, my husband made a beautiful frame from old fence boards and it looked amazing. Now he frames all of my work, he uses a lot of re-purposed wood, old fences, pallets... His unique frames and my watercolors are the perfect combination.
