I am a musician who began painting in 1990. When an illness prevented me from singing I began watercolor painting as a creative outlet. Painting flowers from my gardens and taking my watercolors with me when I travel is one of my favorite activities.
Putting the colors on the white paper and watching them create something unique is akin to performing music –exploring the various tone colors and harmonies that are there to be discovered. For me, participation in the arts is a necessity. I believe in a quote from Joseph Campbell, “We cannot cure the world of sorrows, but we can choose to live in joy”.
