I have always been drawn to the clean lines that could be achieved with Watercolor painting. I began my studies in 1966 when I lived in Coos Bay, Oregon. I traveled, a short trip, to Bandon every Wednesday to begin my education in transparent watercolors.
A fine artist by the name of Pernot Duff taught a very pure form of watercolor. No tricks, no salt , no alcohol for textures . White in a watercolor was the pure paper, which required seeing negative spaces and save the whites! In “The Baker’s Dozen” watercolor the organic eggs are pure paper.
I have since studied with many watercolorists, each one having a different approach and with very successful results.
An Oregon State alum with a degree in Home Economics, now called Health and Human Services.
A member of the Oregon Watercolor Society since 1988, and have exhibited in several of their Fall Transparent show, plus The Spring show in 2013, held in the Hillsboro Library.
I enjoy the challenge of watercolor.
