My passion for art and specifically watercolor has been an underlying thread which emerged from the curious tangles of life. My husband is an environmental writer who opened my life to breathtaking explorations of nature with each season. Through camping, backpacking and river trips, I am constantly awed by the geography of our protected lands. I see nature as a gift to be enjoyed and protected. Watercolor challenges me to express the freshness of color and light ranging from redrock to autumn leaves.
