I create luminous watercolor portraits that highlight what is unique and beautiful about the amazing flora and fauna that surrounds us. My work combines a diverse background in starts with a passion instilled at an early age to preserve those wild places and environments that are constantly being encroached upon by the world of humans. I examine each living thing to see how it fits into its habitat and the world at large. There is so much in our world that is fleeting and my work strives to capture what I can before it fades from our view with the use of the transitory medium of watercolor. Both my artistic method and my subject matter are delicately fragile but are all the more beautiful because of it. Recently, I have exhibited at the Rhode Island Watercolor Society, Arlington Center for the Arts, Lexington Arts & Crafts Society, Gallery Twist in Lexington, MA, and at the Horlock House Gallery in Navasota, Texas as part of a sixth-month artist residency in early 2022.
