I combine my scientific background with my love of nature, color and texture. My art work is evolving from total watercolor to mixed media on layered papers and collage, although I am willing to experiment with most any medium. Even as I begin to explore new methods and media, I retain my love of nature. Subject matter varies from the realistic to the abstract. I am delighted by the beauty of nature and travel with my camera seeking references for studio painting. You can see by the examples below that even though my work continues to change, I can't resist a bit of whimsy now and then.
