I love the beauty of the flowing, merging washes. I love its transparency. I love how it can be extremely detailed like some of Edward Hopper's works or incredibly loose like those of Maurice Prendergast. I love the wet, luminous qualities of J.M.W. Turner's London sunsets and the dry, scraped, churning seas by Winslow Homer.
I've taken classes at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and more recently studied under wonderful New England watercolor artists such as Andrew Kusmin and Marla Greenfield who was featured in the Winter 2011 edition of American Artist Watercolor. For the past few years, I’ve studied under Nancy Walton, one of my favorite local artists.
