I am a multi-media artist. I work with a wide range of materials and formats, punctuated by periods of peaceful drawing from nature. My background includes two-dimensional art, illustration, cartooning, and fiber arts.  My current series of work involves interpretations of the forests and lakes that surround my house and studio.  I observe the always changing light and shapes of the foliage and paint loose, wet watercolors from memory.  The fluid blobs and splashes then inspire larger abstracted visions of nature.
