My story with watercolor...

 

"All my life I have loved the look of watercolor but not until my children were grown and our nest was empty did I attempt to begin a journey in watercolor. I'm so glad I took that path for it has been a wonderful time of discovery for me.

 

My journey began with how-to books. I started reading everything I could get my hands on that dealt with watercolor. It was a great beginning and slowly I put into practice what I was learning. It was a process and I was dedicated to pursuing it.

 

My real turning point came when I enrolled in a watercolor workshop with a well-known and talented local artist. I knew I could learn to paint but I also knew that I was a visual learner and needed to see first hand how an experienced watercolorist worked. The workshop did the trick. I was able to see what someone else could do and gleened from that experience what worked for me.

 

Today, I continue to enjoy the learning process. I get a step closer and discover something new with each painting.

 

We gravitate to the things we love and it's obvious by the look of my website that I love painting people. I'm constantly looking for a "face" to paint. I absolutely find people and their facial expressions fascinating. I believe it's because with each expression there is an untold story behind it.

 

As I continue my journey with this wonderful medium of watercolor I hope to capture many more expressions and the many stories behind them."
