I am often confronted with an exclamation of "This can't be watercolor! It's too precise!"

To be certain, my way of treating transparent watercolor is anything but traditional. I hope to gain a more contemporary, perhaps slicker feel to the surface. While my approach eliminates some of the spontaneity of the traditional methods, using watercolor allows me to add layer after layer, building up an intensity of color while maintaining a very flat surface.

I also spend an incredible amount of time obsessing over the details.  Everything seen in a painting is preceded by precise drawings. I will work out as many details as possible before touching paint to the paper. My attention to detail results in only a few paintings per year.For subject matter, I frequently use personal experiences, societal and political issues and their broader meaning as inspiration. Every now and then my paintings are somewhat therapeutic  for me. Every one tells a story.
