My art practice is an exploration of the formal visual elements, as well as my personal feelings, through an intuitive, spontaneous process.
Often reminiscent of imaginary landscapes, my watercolor paintings evolve through layers of washes, with an emphasis on the mark making. There is a quiet tension between the watercolor's fluidity, softness and calm, versus the dynamic, rhythm and energy of drawing.
Watercolor as a medium holds inherent qualities of intimacy, lightness, and spontaneity. Unlike most other mediums, its mistakes can't be covered up with another layer. Its transparency shows the whole process.
I love that aspect of its vulnerability - it resembles life itself.
