I love the nuances of watercolor, the pigment and water at play. It’s one of my favorite mediums. 

You’ll find my paintings reference life, travel, nostalgia, and imagination. I don’t shy away from color and love to create bright pieces. My favorite comment about my work is that they are “transportive, they take me to the place and feeling of the moment“.

It’s a peaceful and meditative medium for me. Enjoy browsing my gallery, contact me if you have any questions, and thank you for your visit.
