ADDITIONAL INFO FROM THE ARTIST: Why Watercolor Paintings on Paper?
I create watercolor paintings on paper in quieter moments of creative flow. I think of these paintings as visual outpourings of playful creativity. My mother's favorite and most frequent form of artistic expression is with watercolors, and my first artwork as a child was with watercolors under her tutelage, starting at age one and continuing throughout my childhood, before I ever touched fine acrylics or oils on canvas. I use a lot of pigment and a lot of water in these paintings to achieve the saturation and flow I desire. I often combine watercolors with drawing, using ink sticks or charcoal, making the paintings expressive and modern. The playfulness inherent in this way of working opens me to my own humanness, and the work happens without a mental plan or boundary.
