"I paint the skies with peace and passion, because that's the way they paint me."

Ancient Romans regarded the hour before dawn and after sunset as holy hours separate from the rest of the day; we still connect with that feeling. Most people will enjoy a beautiful sunset, and those that rise early enough, a beautiful dawn.

My subject is “sky” -- I work in many different mediums to depict it: watercolor, acrylic, oil, refractured watercolor/watercolor collage and mixtures of the above. Each offers different possibilities and has different strengths and restrictions. I also love working on different surfaces such as wood, metal or fiberglass.

The refractured watercolor medium is all transparent watercolor on watercolor paper. I paint each sky or water reflection sometimes up to five times, depending on the desired finished size. Each variant is in slightly different colors and because it is wet-in-wet it is always a little different each time. Then I cut them and collage back together.
