I am an emerging watercolor artist taught by Melissa Gannon and Lian Quan Zhen. Since retiring from teaching elementary school for nearly 30 years, I have taken time to learn watercolor painting through classes and exploration. I am inspired by nature everywhere and marvel at the colors especially in the Pacific Northwest. I use transparent Watercolors on 140# cold pressed 100% cotton paper. My goal is to become more spontaneous and free in my expression and style.
