I shifted from larger mostly abstract acrylic work to

smaller loosely realistic watercolors around 2016. I

purchased a 6 season parks and rec watercolor class for

me and mom to take together. It was in this class that I

discovered that watercolor is my soulmate medium. I

love the magical mystery of how watercolor pigment

moves in water. I also love flowers, cats, great light and

enjoying life.

In addition to being an artist, I also grant design patents

at The USPTO. It's my job. It's interesting and cool and I'm

super happy.

I’m so glad you stopped by my happy art spot here. If

you're interested in purchasing an art piece please email
