"As a watercolorist, I've always enjoyed the mystery this medium bestows. I can express beauty and wonder and it may never be the same twice. Every brush stroke is a pleasure and a completed painting or design is a joy to see. For me, the purpose of putting artwork in front of someone elses eyes is to make that person feel good."
