I've been painting for about eight years. I primarily paint on-site (en plein aire). These are watercolor 'sketches' which allow me to create my own visual memories of my travels. I've found they improve my quilting because they cause me to slow down and observe more closely. Recently I've been creating studio works from my on-site studies and also creating still-life paintings. I love to travel, and lately have been traveling in my Airstream trailer instead of traveling to Europe. Since I'm in parks and love trailers, they've become my new favorite subject. Some of my paintings are available for sale, please contact me if you are interested.
