         Ink and Watercolor Artist

My focus is watercolor and ink.

I love the vivid color and transparency.

I am always attracted to the loosest, most colorful piece in an exhibition.

Color enhances mood ...so I try to incorporate it in all my work.

Watercolor

Portrait work in watercolor is by commission.

I prefer  Windsor Newton watercolor on clay-board, illustration board  or watercolor board. 

UV archival protected

Ink and Flow Acrylics

Flow acrylic and alcohol inks are on

clay board, bristol and yupo. I use archival spray for fading.


Resin on Clayboard or Canvas

My larger  resin work is on clayboard or canvas . 

My collage work is done on canvas with polymer gels

and foils.
