When I was in undergrad, I wasn’t particularly fond of using watercolor paints. I found them very difficult to work with and I wasn’t comfortable with the fact that I couldn’t control them. I dreaded the days we had to work with watercolors in class. It wasn't until after our sons were napping one day – when I decided to try again. It had been a while since I had done anything creative. Being a mom is challenging, and I was tired, as most new moms are. After a little while of trying different things, something clicked and it just felt right. It may have been that motherhood taught me about letting go, gave me more patience to try. I stopped trying to be so intricate and precise. I stopped trying for perfection. The trick with watercolors is to go with the flow and have fun!

I gain inspiration every day from the small fishing villages, the sights and sounds and just being in such a creative, beautiful environment. I live in a small town on Florida's Treasure Coast in between Jupiter and Stuart, Florida with my husband and two boys.
