Media: Transparent watercolor painting and India ink drawing

I live in San Francisco and paint in the SF Bay Area.

I paint and draw en plein air in a spirit of spontaneity, play and celebration. I love the brilliancy of watercolor: light reflects back from the white paper through transparent paint, rather like stained glass. I love India ink because drawing in ink connects my hand directly to my mind, spirit and unconscious.

It has been said that I paint the world the way I would like it to be.

  • BA in Art at Mills College

My Watercolor teacher

  • Whenever there may be development, learning, knowledge and more, there will be a teacher behind it, and another before that, and another before. I would like to acknowledge Kenneth Potter who was my watercolor teacher from 1976 through 1982.

Kenneth Potter, AWA
