ARTIST STATEMENT: I love to create art with paint and water. I started painting in Long Island where I grew up, and now I live and work in Brooklyn, New York. I really feel like I can expand the ideas of what watercolor can do. Although it's important to study the masters of the past like the wonderful scenery and still life paintings of Winslow Homer and John Singer Sargent, I want to explore a lot more in my work. My paintings are about life. The good times and the bad.
