Watercolor & Mosaic

The most important element to me is the use of color—particularly in how color itself, rather than shading or composition, affect mood and the viewer’s response. I have used the same or variations on a compositional theme repeatedly, using different colors and color combinations to achieve different moods and responses to my work.

When I look over my work I can see the overall themes of nature and color. I use animals, the natural world, and nature imaginings in my current work. My work has become less realistic and more fanatastical.

Born in Brooklyn, NY, I came to Wisconsin to attend college and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Fine Art. I began watercolor painting in the late 70s and have shown my work in exhibits throughout the U.S. After dealing through galleries across the U.S. I have settled into painting for myself, which allows me more freedom of style and subject. I have won awards throughout the country and my work is owned and shown in museums and over 50 corporations, hospitals, and public buildings.
