Artist's Statement

  The natural beauty of Vermont, especially her mountains and lakes, inspire my best work. The spontaneity of watercolors, sometimes frustrating, offers excitement in its unpredictability. For a renewal of the spirit I move to the pen with its precision and convenience often combining it with watercolors.
