As a watercolor artist, my paintings give expression to my obsession for nature in all its forms, colors, and designs. With watercolor as my media and my passion, I concentrate significantly on nature, wildlife, birds, landscapes, seascapes, and sporting art, but I also pursue a variety of other subjects as well.. Always an admirer of birds, I paint many species, mainly from the Texas gulf coast. Capturing their color, their action, their moods, and their subtle mannerisms provides me with both delight and challenge.

Working with watercolor paints allows me to do many things with this medium. I find that I can experiment more with watercolor than all other media combined. With watercolors, I like to paint, drool, scratch, dab, mop, salt, and incorporate a wide variety of other techniques. Primarily, I paint in high detail capturing a scene that presents nature in its many patterns, shapes and spirit.
