Statement My watercolor and gouache works on paper are abstract explorations of color and shape, line and mass, movement and balance. The image is informed by memories of places, of atmosphere and light, but I work improvisationally, intuitively developing the image in response to what I see happening on the paper. My love of color and movement, music and dance are reflected in the works’ shapes and lines.
