Original Watercolor, Ink, and Mixed Media Paintings
The process of painting on flat paper offers a different creative expression than my work with fiber and paper. Here, I can focus on line, color, shape, and design in a two dimensional way. Drawing out and planning each composition is like a dance. Watercolor and ink are feminine media. You must respond to the mediums in the present moment, and be open to fluid shapes and spontaneity. The immediate nature of these paints has been an expression of joy and presence in the world of nature. I look to my immediate surroundings in our beautiful rural Vermont locations for inspiration in this work.
