Flinging Pigment


Artist Statement

Originally hailing from Texas and currently residing in Overland Park, KS where creatively I specialize in original watercolors, oils,  photography, and woodworking.  I also currently teach watercolors weekly in Overland Park at the Jewish Heritage Center and I teach 2 design studios at the College of Architecture and Design at the University of Kansas in Lawrence.  The improvisation in each painting commands a respect for the medium and its ever-changing characteristics that when successful leave behind a visible emotion on the paper.
