Artists Statement

Since the late 90’s, as a self-taught painter in watercolor, I worked at the confluence of accident and intention, seeking to evoke, without copying, the luminous natural world. Seven years ago I began exploring the extension of transparent watercolor into the third dimension by painting on one or both sides of window glass with water-based paints specially formulated to adhere permanently to glass, and mounting whole painted glass panels or cut pieces into multiple painted transparent layers. This process results in work which combines the luminosity of stained glass with the looseness and freedom of watercolor.
