These watercolor paintings suggest the emotional state of being you feel when you have been affected
by a special location you can’t forget, no matter how long ago you were there.
Not content to simply record the reality of a location, my transparent watercolor paintings capture the colors and feelings that are evoked when something familiar and well traveled suddenly appears fresh and new again.
I find inspiration in memory and the everyday world. Italy, Ireland, England, and several States are some of the locations that I have painted to express a place etched in enduring memory.
