About the Artist
For most of my life I have painted and designed, having been influenced by my father’s photography and my grandmother’s garden. Even as a young child I was fascinated by color and the changing light; and by the feel of a day as it transformed before my eyes. My education at BSU (BA Theatre Arts and MS Educational Technology) have contributed to my respect for the importance of communicative relationships in life; and that communication is, I believe, an intrinsic psychological element that permeates my work today. I have enjoyed the challenges and rewards of working in watercolors for 40 years. Having a fairly wide range of subject matter, my work is both representational and abstract; and even with a firm idea in mind I generally go where a painting takes me, hoping to combine both external and inner observations to share with the viewer.
