I only really discovered watercolor painting a few years ago. I had tried it a few times on my own, and it was not love at first sight. It wasn't until I took a class that I found watercolor could be really fun. One class led to signing up for many with a wonderful teacher, Caroline Ampuero. She has taught and coached me to the point that I can be truly happy with some of my paintings. Although I still have a lot to learn!
Through learning more about watercolor, I have come to love how the colors mix together on the paper and how the light shines through them. It's exciting to explore what I can create with this medium. I also take great joy in bringing a little happiness to other people through my art.
I am based in Eden Prairie, MN and am a member of the Minnesota Watercolor Society.
