I had been wanting to paint today, but it was quite cold out. I bought a potted plant at the garden center the other day for our front doorstep, so I decided to sit on the steps and try to paint it. This way, if it was truly too cold, I could pop inside after the initial drawing and finish the painting.
I am a self-taught artist who discovered the world of watercolour purely by accident in 1995. My favorite subjects are flowers, boats and glass. My greatest passion is to create unique and original visual enjoyment and many of my pieces are incorporated in private collections throughout Canada. I have been a contributing artist with the ASRS at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia since 1998. I continually find inspiration in the mediums themselves by exploring with different techniques and textures. Watercolour gives me the freedom to explore hidden perceptions and express them by blending closely observed reality with colour, texture, patterns and light. I do not subscribe to the idea that an artist has only one true voice or style of painting. Thank you for your interest ~~!
