My watercolors and sketches are inspired by my excursions both around the world and, especially, in my “weird” city of Austin, TX. My entire life has been filled with color and my paintings reflect it. As I look back, I find that watercolor has helped the former perfectionist in me loosen up, because I’ve learned to let the paint flow how it wishes and to enjoy the results. This mentality has spilled over into my non-painting life as well and has improved my overall way of living. I wish to share that same joy and freedom with my audiences. My first book Reflections on Art, Life, and Italy was published in 2021 through Sunset Valley Press and features my paintings and sketches of Italy, along with reflections on my art process and on life.
