Hello
About
When painting, I lose myself for a while and
am free to create and design a work that’s loose
and spontaneous on YUPO. I try to capture just
the essence of what’s inside myself, painting
quickly with a lot of flowing energy. I like there
to be a lot going on close up, but to have the
wholeness of the work show that something’s
there too. I design with pattern and my work has been described as a "Sense of Interval".

 I am the  Screening Chair and Workshop Coordinator for the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society and former Vice President.
