A nationally recognized award winning watercolor artist and illustrator, my works have been published most recently in Watercolor Artist, April 2014, February 2013, October 2011, and February 2008; The Art of Watercolour, March 2012; and also in American Artist, June 2007.
I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of variation. Creating paintings in a series using a common theme allows me to focus on a particular subject matter of interest, but changing that subject for the next series is absolutely necessary to retain interest. I approach each painting with the thought of wanting to return to review it again at a later date. If I can capture that interest within myself, the content and execution of the painting is successful. Using my illustration background, I search for concept, composition, and detail in a representational style of painting that is predictable, but a choice of subject matter that is not.
A graduate of Kutztown University with a BFA in Commercial Art (Communications,) I originally began my career as a graphic designer and illustrator in a design studio, but I now work solely as a freelance illustrator and fine artist. I am a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, Pennsylvania Watercolor Society sgg, the Baltimore Watercolor Society, the Philadelphia Watercolor Society, Watercolor USA, and the Transparent Watercolor Society of America.
