The spontaneous flow of color and added anatomical detail are combined for my watercolor paintings.  Birds of the Northeast has been my concentration , pursuing a goal of capturing a life like quality. This goal then developed into a desire to show interactions between the birds and humans. 

       Recently I have been working on collages of my watercolor images in order to push the bounderies of my compositions. Cutting apart various paintings of mine (deconstruction) , I then developed a technique of reassembling the pieces into a new composition (reconstruction).  Layering adds another dimension. 

      The expressiveness of hands are a fascination of mine that I incorporate frequently.   Thus the human element of interaction.

     Spirograph designs have evolved in my work leading to a less literal reference though suggesting the interplay of nature and math.

        Originally from Buffalo I have spent most of my life in the

snow belt areas of western New York , Saranac Lake , and in the

Finger Lakes region. A job relocation for my husband, James

brought us to Milton Vermont in 2008.
