"My work is primarily in watercolor and monotype printmaking, sometimes a unique combination of the two mediums.

My approach in each of these mediums relies upon the subtle building of texture and imagery through the layering of pigment. My experience as a watercolor painter makes me appreciate the process of monotype for its immediacy and flexibility.

This layered approach has also led me to a deeper view of my creative vision. I want to convey a sense of wholeness and unity in my work. I hope that my imagery crosses cultural divides, might even span time, and unites the human spirit with the natural environment."
