Welcome to my Web page.  This will give you a glimpse into my work 
Painting has been a significant part of me...for most of my adult life.  It has introduced me to some of my best friends, encouraged me to go to interesting places to sketch, taught me to "see" and "appreciate" the world through a painter's perspective, and given me hundreds of hours of pleasure and entertainment.  

I have explored oils, acrylics and have recently settled on watercolour as my medium of choice.  I just love the unpredictability as water, paint and paper meet.  I love how it paints itself if you let it.   It can be unforgiving and at the same time magical. I like painting landscapes, seascapes, buildings, flowers.
