Artist Statement
Watercolor is my medium, and I like to use the entire value scale in each painting whether I’m painting landscapes, animals, flowers, or portraits.

I came to the US from Germany to go to college and studied biology. After raising my children, I was able to concentrate on art. I received an AA in Illustration and Graphic Design from NVCC.

Subsequent to a stint as art director while taking classes at The Art League in Alexandria, I began to focus solely on watercolor. I love creating sketchbooks while traveling.

I am a signature member of the Virginia Watercolor Society, Baltimore Watercolor Society, as well as an active member of the Potomac Valley Watercolorist and the Art League in Alexandria. I also belong to Salon 8, a group of artists who exhibit together.
