Artist Statement Watercolor is and has been my favorite medium. Even after many years of painting, it is still a joy for me to see the colors mingle freely when applied to paper or any suitable surface. I alternate between traditional and abstracted/non- objective work, which helps me not to get stagnant and lets me grow as an artist.
