I used to be a lawyer but I got sick. More than thirty years ago I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and eventually recognized I was unable to continue practicing law. The silver lining? I began to paint!

I now have a wonderful need to paint. When I’m painting I lose track of time, of all the problems in today’s world and instead concentrate on color, shape and light. The more I paint the more details I see which I want to paint, etc., which is why I often work in series. Everywhere I look I see “paintable” possibilities – people, animals, gardens, beaches and water. I love painting the sunsets I’m so lucky to see from my house; the colors and patterns are different every night, sometimes gentle and peaceful, often vibrant and abstract.

Watercolor is the perfect medium for me as the scenes I’m drawn to often look as if they were actually created in watercolor with layers of bleeding, blending and transparent colors. I hope my work encourages people to see beauty and the details in everyday scenes.
