I feel a particular sense of excitement when I choose to paint a floral or a still life. The colors of these beautiful items are a challenge to capture. Many artists inspire me when I work on florals and still lifes. The golden age of the Dutch painters with their elegant richly colored paintings and the Impressionists with their vibrant colors and lively brushstrokes are a constant reminder of how to beautifully paint this subject matter.
I prefer to use the lyrical transparency of watercolor as my medium for still life and floral subjects. Water is a living element and combined with vibrant watercolor pigment it brings to life the subject matter. The intricate pigment of the skin of a common pear or the luscious, sensual softness of the petals of an iris all come to life for me when I work with watercolor.
This creative journey of capturing the beauty of everyday items is what motivates me to paint, making every day an adventure where I am able to share the unique beauty of what inspires me.
