Artist’s Statement:

“Painting is my language. With watercolor, brush and paper, I look to see mystery in the literal. I cut open a large navel orange, and before me appear sunburst segments with sparkle of light coming alive with the water and color of the paint. In the bark of a tree with its endless overlapping segments, vertical channels and molten textures, I see colors of grays, purples,
pinks, browns.I am fascinated with the play of patterns, the flow of color in water, the graduations of light and dark, and what is suggested and felt rather than the literal. As I paint, I translate what is there in front of me to a new forms evolving on the watercolor paper. I am drawn to elements that are ephemeral and not immediately seen such as reflections, overlaps, dappling light, colors flowing one into another, fading and disappearing forms.”

She combines interplay between representation and abstraction with unexpected color combinations and compositions, working with the natural flow of watercolor.
