Artist Statement Submitted 2020

Art has been a part of my life since an early age. The art I create has no political or social agenda. It is produced to reflect the beauty of the world around us. During the course of my life, I believe I have worked in almost every medium available. I currently devote most of my time to watercolor, as I believe it is the most demanding medium there is. Watercolor demands a high degree of skill in color selection, application, surface saturation, and timing in working the paper surface in a dry or wet into wet applications. The effects achieved in watercolor cannot be duplicated in any other medium. I think all watercolor artist will agree that watercolor can and does often surprise the artist in its effect. For these reasons, I choose to be a watercolor artist.
