Starting in art school and all through my early years as an illustrator, I was encouraged to paint in many different mediums and styles. I tried them all and in the end, I settled on watercolor. The spontaneity and flow fit my personality and style. What I look for and strive to achieve can only be expressed in the wonderful medium of watercolor. Artists are often asked to define what inspires them. For me, the one thing that comes to mind is the play of sunlight, indoors or out, which defines and creates a mood.
