Watercolor is like dancing with a partner. It has a mind of its own. You start with an idea, but once you put the brush to paper, Things happen and you respond.

Either you’re satisfied with your work or you start the dance again. 

Inspiration comes from everywhere… my garden, ballet, the Minnesota seasons, travel, pets, life. From Berthe Morisot, JMW Turner, David Hockney. From connecting with other artists, my students, people around me.

I’ve been drawing and painting my whole life. I love the process of art making. It gives me joy. I’ve taught workshops and classes for all ages because we all have ideas to express.
