I am passionate about painting landscapes, seascapes and urbanscapes in the medium of watercolor. I have been drawing and painting since I was a child and am more enthusiastic about the work than ever. I have a master of arts degree in fine arts but continue to learn every day and with each painting. I hope you enjoy the work as much as I did painting them.
