I have been painting watercolors for 30 years and am particularly drawn to experimental techniques. I love working with paper and water media. Recently I have been experimenting with Yupo, a synthetic paper, and am intrigued by the action of watercolor on its surface. Traditionally, I prefer hand-made and rag papers, but Yupo has been a great surprise.
Thematically, I like to explore the ineffable rather than the representational. I am especially interested in the evocation of collective experience that often emerges as a painting develops.
