As an artist, I have chosen watercolor as my primary medium, followed closely by pastel. I paint what interests me — usually the landscape and the abstract, and sometimes I can’t tell the difference. I seek simplification and I enjoy experimentation. I want to distill my chosen subject, emotion or thought to what I feel is its basic sense — preferably in a way that would not occur to anyone else.
I now live in Aurora, Oregon.
I am a self-taught artist except for a few art classes I recently took at Clackamas Community College. I graduated June of 2012 and received my Certification in Graphic Art and Web Design. I started drawing and painting at a very young age and was inspired and encouraged by my mother to draw and paint every day.
