Watercolor artists.


"Light has always intrigued me...  I paint this light in my paintings, which makes them sparkle with life, intrigue and mystery, I consider my watercolor paintings to be 'Fantasy Illusionism.'"

I am a self-taught watercolor artists.  I am best known for my breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.  I paint without drawing.  First I thoroughly wet my paper, then I paint washes of color finishing with dry brush, deliberately omitting some detail to let the viewer's imagination soar.

I earned my Bachelor of Science from the State University College at Potsdam, New York, where in my senior year I received the prestigious William F. Anderson Art Award.  After graduation I taught art in the Fairport, New York school district and also taught watercolor privately.  I then pursued a full time career in watercolor painting.
