I have lived in North Idaho for most of my life. I have found that creating brings a balance to my life. My career as an accountant keeps me following the rules. I crave the outlets where there are no rules, or if there are, I follow them loosely.
I paint simply because it makes me happy. I love working with color. I paint a variety of subjects and I use different mediums. Watercolor has been my primary choice. Since I have started painting I look at my surroundings in a different light. It helps me to find the beauty, light and color that is all around me in everyday things such as the wood-grain in my office furniture to the constantly changing sky.
