'My goal as an artist is to capture the essence of my subject and express it using the dramatic flow of transparent watercolors. My fascination
with light and shadow and the mood it creates has encouraged me to capture that feeling in my paintings. If the viewer feels what I felt then I have reached my ultimate goal of expression through watercolors.'
