Artist Statement

Painting is my passion, Nature my inspiration.

Watercolor is the tool of my expression. It is elusive, magic, unpredictable, and totally addictive!

Everyday is a reason to celebrate the gifts of Nature, constantly changing, sometimes challenging us, mesmerizing us..

Outdoors is where my paintings are born, where I feel free and happy. In the studio, I can complete , or plan and realize larger work, as well as commissions.

I am from 2 countries, and I love their differences and similarities. This brings fresh enthusiasm. I enjoy exploring new horizons, evolving constantly and surprising myself and the viewer.

Current artists who have inspired me along the way are: Alvaro Castagnet, Joseph Zbukvic, Herman Pekel, and Vladislav Yeliseyv.

My forever favorites: Andrew Wyeth, John Singer Sargent, and Monet, Van Gogh and Gauguin. And, so many more...
