An Online Artist's Coop for Artists who Paint on Location
I am a Watercolor Landscape Painter. My intent is to excite the viewer with color and the feeling of place. Painting on location inspires me to make quick decisions with composition and design, color intensity, and loose brush strokes. My painting style is showing change; I use fewer brush strokes and more color.
I travel the back roads of the High Desert and San Bernardino Mountain area in my CJ-5 Jeep in search of my next visual story.
I teach watercolor techniques and the courage to paint in the classroom and on location workshops.
Exhibits and Affiliations: Women Artists of the West, assoc
