My inspiration comes from the simplest, most beautiful reflection of nature, people and landscape, from Portraits to Abstract. I began doing portraits after falling in love with Rembrandt's paintings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The exposure and appreciation of art instilled in me the desire to create my own style.
My inspiration comes from nature and creativity comes from the unconscious. I spread the paints without forethought. Feelings flow through my hand and the paint strokes set the stage. I finish by finding beings in the strokes and the story emerges."
In my practice of expressive photography, I let mindful awareness of emotion lead the creative process. I’m guided to find color, shapes, light and texture that express my internal landscape and intuitive vision.
Watercolor opens up by imagination. Watching the paint move across wet paper reminds me of jewel-like tropic fish -- bright splashes of color floating forward, delightfully unpredictable, brilliantly translucent... and absolutely magical.
