Hi! I love walking, traveling, and creating art. When any of those are combined, it surely puts me in 'the flow'. I'm left-handed when writing, but ambidextrous with most other things.
I am a lifelong artist, always drawing and sketching. After an overseas trip, I decided to try watercolors. I tried teaching myself with books and videos, and took classes with a local artist. The quality of my art was so-so, but it wasn't until I landed on Flickr and found Urban sketchers, journalers and other similar artists that I was able to find my 'style'.
Interested in buying my art? Check out my etsy shop here:
Letting go of perfectionism and fussing led to a wonderful sense of 'water' colors. My art seemed to express the feelings I wanted to share.
Oh, and I also had more fun! More fun led to me getting my scooter, but that's another story!
Please look through and I hope you have fun too, and enjoy my art!
