Artist’s Statement: Watercolor is magic to me. 25 years ago, I first picked up brush and pigment and from then on I was hooked! Blending beautiful transparent pigment with water and then watching the unexpected flow over the cotton rag paper never ceases to amaze and excite. The magic that happens on the paper would never happen with brush work alone. This last year my husband and I built a studio on our 5 acres. My new space affords a beautiful view of the coast range and my goats in the pasture. I am very excited to share my studio with the public during this tour.
