ARTISTS IN BLOGLAND INTERVIEW
Tell us about blogging and how it's worked for you.
How did you discover your favorite art medium?
Which aspect of your art do you enjoy most?
The aspect of my watercolour work that I enjoy the most is drawing. It is a wonderful and satisfying activity and as my skills develop, I find the activity is more and more satisfying. Watercolour demands an ability to draw and since I love the look of lines and making lines, I was quickly drawn to it (no pun intended!).
My goal for my future work is to continue with a sense of playfulness combined with solid technique. It is important to me that the paintings are well crafted and skillfully painted but with a dash of playfulness. I plan to continue with an emphasis on contour line drawings with spots of bright watercolour.
Have you exhibited work or taught classes?
I have exhibited my art in juried watercolour shows and many group shows for the past 10 years. It's always wonderful, and eye opening, to see all of my work on display in a professional setting and to hear the public's response. Also, the support from fellow artists, as well as their constructive feedback, is very valuable and inspiring.
What have you done this past year?
For the past year I have been working with the theme of cityscapes. It is a complex subject and since I like working directly on location, it has been a difficult challenge. It is an ongoing search to find a way to present what I see in life onto paper with pen and watercolour but I am determined to see it through and discover what is next in store for me.
