Watercolor/Pen & Ink Paintings of New England Scenes


I love painting with watercolor. When I first started working with the medium is made me nervous not to be able to control it, then in time I learned to love the uncontrollable chaos of it. I use pen to put in the fine details then go over with watercolor. I mix my paint loosely so that it separated slightly giving the painting texture. I love to paint natural things, birches, dead beech leaves, waterfalls, plants, stones, it allows me to be freer in my painting style, nothing ever looks the exactly the same in nature. You can fall in love with the imperfect. A flower missing a metal, a tree with a broken branch, these are what I like to find and focus on. Painting in nature is always exciting and exploring it is my passion.

“trees really capture my heart, and your piece allows me to really see this birch up close, for as long as I want to look! (Forever and a day??!)  Also, the composition captures for me the passage of time and the transformations of nature.  If I could draw and paint like you, that is an image I would want to create.  I feel like it’s been inside me waiting for an artist to put it on paper for me!”
