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.
Along with birds, the expressiveness of hands are a fascination of mine that I incorporate frequently. Concentrating on figurative work I have also extended my subject matter. Thus the human element.
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.
